Two pot were given to me with half dead plants from a property that was purchaced. With a bit of love this is what has emerged.
I have searched for days in vain. Can anyone tell me what this plant is?

I believe that is going to be a Curcuma Ginger. I have no idea about species or cultivar.

Curcuma alismatafolia 'Siam Tulip'. This is in the plant database. Mine are not doing nearly that well, Otownstarter - could you let us know where you are?
