Its not really a tulip but rather a member of the ginger family.

Thank you so much, Daisyl! It's funny because when Googling, the closest match I could make via images was the ginger. I guess I was closer than I thought. Thank you again!

Correct, not Tulipa but rather Curcuma and I have no idea where the common name Siam Tulip originated.
