  • The “Guava Jelly Ginger” or Hedychium greenii does not set seed but is easily grown from the bulb like keiki that forms after the flower fades. (Voltaire Moise/Special to West Hawaii Today)

Long summer days stimulate flowering of many fragrant ginger species. Visitors to our slands frequently comment on how sweet our air smells with the abundance of flowers in bloom.
