This hybrid selection of the Indian Curcuma zedoaria was made for its attractive bicolor flowering bracts...solid white except for purple fingernail-sized tips on the end of each bract. The 6' tall, bold, aspidistra-like foliage, with a maroon stripe down the leaf center, emerges in mid-June alongside the pinecone-like inflorescence. We have found Curcuma zedoaria to be extremely easy to grow under a wide range of typical garden conditions with the exception of waterlogged soils.
