Introduced to the UK by Crg Farm as Hedychium aff. ellipticum BSWJ 7171 it flowered as Hedychium brevicaule in 2005.

Hedychium brevicaule is most unlikely to succeed in UK gardens but is a nice thing for the Hedychium collector with a glasshouse or conservatory with about 2 m. headroom.  The white flowers have a pleasant scent.
