Curcuma 'Pink Wonder' has been the star of our curcuma trials. The tardily emerging foliage finally shows itself in mid-June, with 7' tall foliage resembling a fancy giant aspidistra...green with a central burgundy stripe. The flowers on this selection emerge like pine cones on separate 1' tall stems alongside the foliage in late summer. Curcuma 'Pink Wonder' was selected for inflorescences that are white at the base and bright pink on the top...quite the showpiece in the garden as well as being easy to grow. We like to plant curcumas alongside spring bulbs for a continuous sequence of interest in the same spot.
