Curuma longa Turmeric
Curcuma longa (Turmeric)
Native to Southwest India. A stunning pant with broad, green, tropical-style leaves throughout the summer. Foliage can reach 60-80cm tall and it will slowly spread through underground rhizomes to form large clumps. The rhizomes are the source of the bright yellow spice used in cooking. Use fresh or dried to flavour Asian and curry dishes. Ideal in pots.
Plants like warm, wet and well fed conditions in well drained soil. Thrives in full sun. Though it’s a tropical plant, turmeric will grow well in temperate zones during summer, but it does die down in winter every year. Do not overwater in winter. Frost tender.
