Wordless Wednesday: 8/13/14 (Siam Tulip)

My smartphone’s charging port crapped out after my last post (no smartphone = no camera/photos.) I finally got it repaired and can’t tell you how good it feels to take pictures again. 🙂  The blog is back in time for Wordless Wednesday.

Siam tulips are Florida late summer bloomers and I look forward to their arrival every August!

Curcuma alismatifolia, Maejo Mont Blanc

Although the inflorescence resembles a northern style tulip, this plant is a member of the Ginger family specifically Curcuma alismatifolia with bracts ranging from pure white to deep purple. Mine are a pink tinged hybrid named Maejo Mont Blanc.

  1. You have such magnificent and interesting flowers. I never realize how different your flora is from ours up here in the mid south.
    Is the siam tulip edible or is it an ornamental family member of Ginger?
    Congratulations on your wonderful photography. I would have never guessed your photos were taken with a phone. Cool! 🙂
