Curcuma are exciting new bulbs in the ginger family that are native to Thailand, Laos, China and other southern Asia countries. Banrai Red Curcuma is an easy to grow bulb with ruby red and yellow flower bracts that bloom in summer. In hardiness zones 8 and above Curcuma will be winter hardy and perennial returning for several years. Curcuma do go dormant in warm climates during the winter months, so don't be alarmed if they disappear for a few months.

Plant Curcuma in moist, well drained soil in soil high in organic matter. During the growing season once the Curcuma has emerged from dormancy be sure to provide plenty of water, as it needs about 1" of water per week to thrive. Curcuma thrive in warm climates and will bloom all summer! Can be grown in the ground in beds or borders, but also does very well in patio planters and containers.

When I first planted them. it didn't look as if they were ever going to sprout, Then all of a sudden. the south Georgia summer heat triggered them and they all sprouted and grew like crazy. This red Curcuma has an incredibly beautiful flower that goes from red at the top and blends into a shade of purple towards the bottom. Very tropical look for the garden. They may appreciate filtered sun if it's very hot and sunny.

I planted Banrai Red Curcuma one month ago. I have not seen anything came out yet. Hopeful it is good. I plant Routo de Rose Double Begonia one month ago. Two tubes came out leaves. They look health. One tube did have anything came out. Hopefully it is good too.
