Also called the Siam or Summer Tulip, the long-lasting blooms of Cucurma are an excellent option for enlivening borders and containers throughout the summer months. A single rhizome can produce up to 5 glorious blooms for a generous display, providing ample flowers to admire in the garden and in the vase.

A quirky horticultural marvel, Cucurma ‘White Wonder’ is a unique, exciting curiosity for the discerning gardener. This tropical perennial is quick to capture attention with its distinctive appearance and spicy fragrance. Cucurma is a variety of turmeric that is as valuable in the garden as it is in the kitchen. Intricate layers of bracts form pinecone-shaped inflorescences of glistening white and lime green. These blooms are produced all through the summer and into autumn against a backdrop of luscious foliage. The tall stems make long-lasting cut flowers for a remarkable bouquet. Treat your Cucurma to warm, rich, moist soil and protect from frost.
