Curcuma 'Sulee Sunshine' is a new and wonderful curcuma hybrid from Thailand breeder Annop Ongsakul. Developed for the tropical cut flower market, Curcuma 'Sulee Sunshine' has come through two mild winters (15 F). This splendid selection flowers for us from August through October with 9" stalks, topped with long-lasting 8" flower "cones," dipped in pink and yellow. As a background, the 18" long x 8" wide pleated green leaves naturally fold away from the flowers unlike many of the other curcumas. This is an exceptional selection for warm climate gardens or as an amazing container specimen in the North.
