Curcuma Scarlet Fever is one of the most dramatic Curcuma hybrids I have seen. The plant grows to 2 to 4 feet tall with large green spear shaped leaves. The main attraction is the bright red stems and red mid-vein down the leaves. The flowers are very beautiful as well growing 8 inches to 1 foot tall and looking like a tropical Popsicle of flowers pink to purple on top and green underneath. It will usually flower in spring before or as the new foliage is emerging.
