Curcuma elata stood out in our trials as one of the finest cold-climate garden specimens in the genus curcuma. The huge, bold-textured, canna-shaped green leaves compose the giant 6' tall clump. For us, this is the earliest curcuma to flower, mid-June in NC, when the 1' tall pine cone-like spikes sprout from the base of the plant. Each flower spike is topped with bright pink bracts which serve as a mini-umbrella for the yellow flowers that poke from the side of the cone below. Curcuma elata has been reliably hardy in our Zone 7b garden.
