How to Cultivating Siam-Curcuma

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.

Siam Tulips

I planted Siam tulips last spring. I cut them down to ground level in early winter. What approximate date would I expect them to start to emerge this spring? I was hoping to see them start to come up by now. Thank you.

I would give them a little bit longer. You should see growth by mid April.

Curcuma…Ginger Lily

My ginger lily bloomed beautifully last year in my sunroom. It died back in the winter. When can I expect it to start growing again? So far nothing is happening.

According to my research, the curcuma ginger lily comes back to life in late spring.

Siam Tulip

When one of the flower dies, do you just cut off the blossom and the stem?
