Hedychium yunnanense just started flowering at the top of China Valley

It's the first Hedychium to flower, even beating our old Hedychium coccineum which has always been first. The more I know this plant, the better I like it. The flowers are colorful without really having any substance and they're pleasantly fragrant, strong but not overwhelming. The plants are shorter and hardier than most species and seem to multiply more rapidly.
