Cautleya cathcartii - soft yellow
Cool member of the true Ginger family, this has torches of soft yellow flowers held above the corn-like foliage. Blooms reliably here unlike a lot of it's kin and we see flowers in July to August in our shade garden. Adds an easy tropical look. This is sometimes seen offered as C. lutea and C. gracilis. Rich soil that stays moist but isn't mucky or waterlogged. Likes a looser. airy soil and best to mulch in fall. A very easy plant which will self-sow when happy which in turn makes us happy.
