Curcuma alismatifolia 'Siam Tulip' Ginger is a strikingly beautiful ginger that superficially resembles a tulip. This plant produces a beautiful dark, rose-pink inflorescence that makes a great cut flower. It has long narrow stiff leaves that resemble tulip leaves and grows to 2' in medium to full sun. It blooms all summer but goes dormant from November to May/June. You won't find plants until June in your garden center but you may be able to find the bulbs in the summer bulb section of your garden center in April. If not, you can order through the internet from Stokes Tropicals.
