Q.How to Cultivating Siam-Curcuma

Zone I do not know | josephlee added on August 26, 2013 | Answered

Recently a friend of mine gave a Siam-Curcuma to me as a gift, it looks so beautiful. I would like to know whether I can keep plant growing long in Alberta (Canada) with the temperature during summer months sometimes going up to 30C or more, while in winter time goes down to -30C with winds. In this type of temperature, can the Siam Curcuma take it or not?

In your area, it would likely be better to grow this plant in a container and treated as a houseplant, allowing it to spend spring/summer outdoors and bringing it back inside prior to cooler weather.
