Our first ginger lily of the year began opening a few days ago, wafting its intoxicatingly sweet fragrance across our garden. These hardy perennials return year after year, growing to over 7 ft high in our garden.
I remain grateful to our neighbor who offered to let me dig some of these beauties from her garden in the weeks before she moved. I’d never grown these before, and simply trusted that we would enjoy them.
We had space for them to spread, and spread they have in the years since. This part of our garden grows dense and tropical and full of life.
Oh my! What a treat we look forward to in late summer each year, when our ginger lilies bloom.
Getting reacquainted with their pure white flowers today has made this a Fabulous Friday, indeed.
