White Butterfly Ginger or simply Ginger Lily (Hedychium coronarium) has been blooming all month after the recent rains. It prefers a more shady location with dappled sunlight and moist soil. I’ve even seen these planted in a bog, along with Taro (Colocasia esculenta). One thing I did not know until doing some research was that the white butterfly ginger is the national flower of Cuba.
