Ginger Lily (Hedychium gardenerianum)
not an Australian native plant
Words to walk with:
From The Idyll Wheel: Cycle of a Year at Bunyah by Les Murray
"Bang! it was autumn,
right on the first of the month,
cool overcast after scorchers
and next day it poured ...
As flesh green abolished
this summer's only white-blond month
the first autumnal scents
were ginger and belladonna."
