Curcuma yunnanensis showing growth of inflorescense This is the REAL Curcuma yunnnensis, my specimen from Tom Wood who received it from the South China Institute of Botany. It differs from many other large Curcumas in that it is a summer flowering species and instead of being basal blooming the inflo. appears from withing the sheath, like C. australasica and others. I have seen other plants with basal flowers in botanical gardens and mail order catalogs incorrecly labeled as Curcuma yunnanensis. The foliage is very attractive with a well defined purple midstripe as in several other Curcumas.

This Curcuma grows to about 6 feet tall in 4-5 hours direct sun in my garden, in rich, moist, orgainic soil. Like all Curcumas it will go dormant in winter (even in the tropics) and it is probably root hardy in zone 8 so long as it does not stay too wet and rot the rhizomes.
