Curcuma alismatifolia (Siam Tulip)


The Curcuma alismatifolia, or Siam Tulip, is a flowering plant native to Thailand, Laos and Burma.
It is a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae) and it is prized for its striking, vibrant flowers which have deep cultural significance in Thailand. However, this is not the same plant at the Curcuma longa, which is the primary source of the bright yellow spice, Turmeric, used in cooking in Asian and Indian cuisines.

Historically, the Siam Tulip was primarily cultivated for its rhizomes, which were used in traditional Thai medicine, but today, the Siam Tulip’s aesthetic beauty and unique flowers make it megastar in floral arrangements and living indoor décor.

It’s not surprising that that beautiful plant is called “Dok Krajiao” in Thailand, which translates to “Rose of the Palace.”

Pot size (base): 15 cm Ø
Overall height: 60 cm ±
