Curcuma petiolata - flower Curcuma petiolata has beautiful tropical looking fan-like foliage that grows from 3 to 4 ft. tall. In mid summer it will produce long lasting yellow flowers with pink coma bracts. The flowers are found down in the foliage - thus the common name "hidden lily". These are very easy gingers to grow and they will increase quickly to a large clump if you lift the rhizomes and divide them in early spring.

They are hardy to USDA zone 7B, but Curcumas have a natural dormancy period during the winter dry season, even in the tropics, and can easily be lifted for winter storage in colder areas. Some Curcuma species are prone to rotting of the rhizomes during dormancy, and should not be kept too wet during winter dormancy. This species is more tolerant than most with winter-wet conditions, making it easier to grow.

Curcuma petiolata will grow in a wide range of conditions from light shade to nearly full sun. Rich, organic, moist but well-drained soil is best.
