Tropical Gardening: Summer brings flowers for fragrance and color - Hawaii Tribune-Herald (subscription)
The yellow ginger, or Hedychium flavescens, from India is another fragrant species common in wet forests and along East Hawaii roadsides. There appear to be hybrids among species. Some are particularly attractive and excellent for long-lasing flower arrangements.
Work should be done to select better hybrids and name them much like we have with hibiscus, croton and plumeria.
The shell ginger with its 3- to 8-foot stalks of evergreen foliage is frequently used in sunny, drier conditions than most gingers. Its flowers, with their combination of cream, yellow and red markings, are excellent materials for floral arrangements. Leaves are used to dye cloth and as a tea in Japan.
Other gingers to consider are the Costus, or spiral gingers. There are many species and varieties. The orange flowered Himalayan ginger, Hedychium greenei, is sometimes called the guava jelly ginger. It is so cold hardy that it will winter over as far north as Seattle and Victoria, British Columbia, if given a little protection. On the Hilo side, you will also see fields of edible ginger grown commercially.
Try several types if you have the room in your garden.
One caution to note is to remember the Kahili ginger is one that seeds and spreads in the wet, higher elevations. Folks in the Volcano area are concerned it is proliferating in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Since park personnel are trying to keep non-native plants out, it would be helpful if the spent flower heads were removed from your garden before they set seed. The seed also can be harvested for culinary and medicinal uses. Of course, park officials would probably prefer it if residents adjacent to the park avoided planting Kahili ginger altogether.
For answers to your questions about fragrant plants, call the UH Master Gardener Helpline at 322-4893 in Kona and 981-5199 in Hilo.

Smelly 'Corpse Flower' Has Bloomed at UMass Amherst Natural History Collections - UMass News and Media Relations
Botanist and assistant biology professor Madelaine Bartlett, whose research interests include plant development and evolution, with greenhouse manager Chris Phillips, say the campus had its last blooming corpse flower about four years ago. Bartlett says, “These plants are sophisticated chemical factories; they have an amazing ability to produce chemicals to attract pollinators. It’s biological mimicry of a fascinating kind.”
She adds that the corpse flower is just one of the many examples of biomimicry, unusual pollination methods and botanical oddities found in UMass Amherst’s “very special teaching and research collection” that is used regularly to teach students about some of the more unusual plants found around the world.
Phillips notes that once a flower blooms, its “peak stinkiness” lasts about 24 to 48 hours depending on environmental conditions. Although the name ‘corpse flower’ is descriptive, it’s misleading. Instead of being a single flower, A. titanum actually bears hundreds of individual flowers; about 400 to 500 male and female on one structure, which grows about three inches per night.
Phillips says the Morrill Greenhouse will extend its public open hours, normally 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., into the evening so that the public can come in and see it, along with other special botanicals in the collection.
