Tulip Gingers Curcuma sp.
Tulip Gingers have narrow leaves that closely resemble large tulip foliage with an elegantly erect flower that superficially resembles a tulip in bloom.
Curcumas are day-length sensitive, and will go dormant in November. They will return in May as soon as the temps heat up for another fabulous display. 18”-24” tall, slowly multiplies into a beautiful clump.
