The flowers of Hedychium coronarium are large and fragrant on tropical-appearing plants which like hot and humid summers and consistently moist soils. Hedychium means "sweet snow," which may refer to the fragrant white blooms, or to the white insides of the edible, spicy tubers. The mashed stem is used to treat cuts and swellings. The ground rhizome can be used to treat fever. Seeds are also aromatic, used to relieve flatulence problems. Traditionally, the rhizome and stems are used to relieve headache.
