Hedychium coronarium, Butterfly Ginger is one of the most fragrant Hedychiums
It's one of the two Hedychiums I have a bit of trouble with in Adelphi, not because of hardiness, but because, along with H. greenii, it likes water to the point of being able to function as an emergent in water gardens. The same water issues gave me problems in the Florida garden until I moved the entire colony to a low spot directly under a rain spout. Even so the dry winters keep the planting pretty ugly until the rains return in summer.
