Hidden No More



The Hidden Ginger (Curcuma petiolata) has not bloomed in years.  Something changed. Could it be finally having a normal amount of rainfall this year?  We have received 41.83 inches as of June for 2015.


On the other hand, the vine coming out of the pot, prefers it dry and hot.  At one time the vine covered the entire bed and spilled onto the sidewalk.  Most of it has died back and the bed has been replanted with other flowers.

  1. Nice Ginger, I think its a rain thing, my Yellow Butterfly Ginger is burnt – it hasn’t rained here in July.

    That’s a beautiful plant! We’ve had much more rainfall than usual here, and some of my plants like it, while others are not faring well at all. But from what I can tell, the colony of chipmunks that lives in my yard is absolutely thriving. For all I know, they’ve got indoor swimming pools in their little runs!
