and he has two pages:
but there are two interesting pages
by a very interesting guy
ps same as the Tallahassee guy (GingersRus(Tallahassee z8B) )
so how do we separate them?
efi page on Hedychium flavescens
The major differences between two is as follows
Characters var. flavum var. flavescens
Lamina 26-37.5 cm long, green or hyaline hairy below 46-50.5 cm long, golden yellow hairy below
Flower length 12.5-13 cm 15.3-15.6 cm
Calyx length 3.3-3.5 cm 4.2-4.4 cm
Corolla tube length 7.9-8 cm 9-9.1 cm
Dorsal corolla lobe length 3.7-3.8 cm 4.8-4.9 cm
Lateral staminodes 3.9-4.1 x 1.4-1.5 cm 5-5.1 x 1.6-1.8 cm
Labellum 3.8-4 x 3.3-3.6 cm 5-5.2 x 4-4.2 cm
Stamen length 4.3-4.5 cm 5.5-5.8 cm
Filament length 3.3-3.4 cm 4.7-4.8 cm
Based on flower size, inflorescence and leaves I go with H. flavescens.
