These heat loving summer flowering beauties are sure to bring the color of the tropics to your garden and patio. We have a huge selection of beautiful, unusual, exotic, as well as rare tropical and subtropical plants for gardens, containers, and greenhouses.
Rosy pink to purplish pink bracts mature to white and finally fade to green on tall sturdy stems. The small true yellow flowers emerge between the bracts singly or a few at a time over an extended period beginning in spring and may continue through summer. The Aussie Plume Ginger is a tall growing selection of Curcuma australasica that is as the name implies native to Australia. Provide a full to mostly sunny position in a well-drained moderately fertile soil for the best results. This is an easy to grow root hardy rhizomatous perennial that can be enjoyed in the garden and in containers whose large deep green foliage provides a tropical accent. Winter dormant but returns readily in mid to late spring. Item# 11510
