Vanilla Ice Butterfly Ginger. This incredibly variegated Butterfly Ginger is a sport off of Hedychium 'Dr. Moy' found by Mark and Louisa Messenbrink of North Carolina. It is far more heavily variegated than its parent and is topped with fragrant peachy-pink flowers in late summer and early fall. Tony Avent reports that it rarely exceeds 3' in Raleigh, NC, but for us it usually reaches 4-5'. This plant is spectacular from the moment it emerges from the ground in the spring until the cold kills it back in late fall. Truly one of the more awesome Butterfly Gingers that I have ever seen because not only does it put on a great floral display in the fall, but its foliar exhibition is unexcelled by any other ginger that we grow.
