Siam Tulip

The Siam Tulip or Summer Tulip (Curcuma alismatifolia) is a tropical plant native to northern Thailand and Cambodia. Despite its name, it is not related to the tulip, but to the various ginger species such as turmeric. It can grow as an indoor plant, and is also sold as cut flowers.

One of the most famous wild fields of Siam Tulips is in the Pa Hin Ngam National Park in the Chaiyaphum province of Thailand.

Hello Manee,
This is a beautiful and interesting flower of the Ginger species you're showing here in a fine composition. Great sharpness, good light and beautiful colours. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Manee,
Thanks a lot for sharing this lovely flowering plant. Never seen it before.

Bonjour Makkala,
Excellente présentation peut-être un peu, selon moi, surexposée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
