Curcuma Collection

Curcuma alismatifolia, Siam Tulip, Ornamental Turmeric

  • Rare summer flowering bulb
  • Be one of the first to grow these exotic Thai flowers in the UK
  • Perfect summer patio pot plant and winter houseplant.

Add a touch of Thailand to your summer patio or conservatory! You may have seen these exotic flowers in luxury tropical bouquets, but it's unlikely you've seen them growing in a garden setting here in the UK. We've managed to secure a limited stock of these unusual summer flowering bulbs, so you can be one of the first UK gardeners to add them to your displays for real wow factor on the patio this summer. Despite their exotic looks, curcuma tubers are no more difficult to grow than frost tender begonias and dahlias. Start them into growth in early spring on a warm windowsill or in the greenhouse for months of summer colour on the patio from their alien-like, waxy flowerheads. Each flower spike is a work of art and is perfectly shown off above the ornamental pleated foliage. All varieties in our mix are winter temperature hardy, but we’ve given them a half-hardy rating because they won't cope outside during a wet winter. If you can keep them dry, then by all means leave them outside during the colder months to go into a dormant phase, but we think you'll get more from these luxurious Siam tulips if you bring them in before the first autumn frost and let them bloom through winter on a warm windowsill. Curcuma ‘Anna Pink’ will add a flash of hot pink to your displays. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread 30cm (12").

Galtonia candicans

As other summer performers are going past their best, our Galtonia bulbs will burst forth to offer an elegant floral display from July through to September.

Make sure to set your Galtonia plants close to seating areas where they can be enjoyed at their best. For the best display plant this South African native in a sunny spot to encourage strong flowering. Height 100cm (39"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy'

Pineapple Lily

  • Standout colour selection
  • Architectural and colourful

This exotic-looking summer flowering bulb might look like it needs mollycoddling, but looks can be deceptive! This standout colour selection offers striking spikes of pink star-shaped flowers surrounded by rich burgundy foliage, offering a really luxuriant feel to border plantings and patio container displays. Plant Eucomis ‘Sparkling Burgundy’ in a sunny position to encourage months of colour.

Blue Mountain Lily

Ixiolirion tataricum, Ixiolirion pallasii, Siberian Lily

This unusual bulb, originating from the Middle East, is rarely seen in gardens. The stunning flowers of the Blue Mountain Lily appear from May to July in a frenzy of royal blue trumpets carried on upright stems. After flowering, it retreats into dormancy for the dry summer period before returning the following year. Ixiolirion is perfectly hardy if naturalised in sheltered borders, but makes a lovely container plant too. Height: 30cm (10"). Spread: 10cm (4"). Bulb size: 4.

Oxalis tetraphylla 'Iron Cross'

Shamrock, Sorrel

This ornamental Shamrock is as versatile as it is pretty. Oxalis tetraphylla 'Iron Cross' is mainly grown for its clover-like, bright green leaves with a dark purple band at the base of each leaflet. From early summer, the distinctive foliage is paired with rosy pink, tubular flowers. This delightful clump forming perennial makes a highly decorative pot plant but is equally effective as ground cover in alpine troughs and rockeries, or added to mixed patio containers. Bulb size 4/5. Height and spread: 15cm (6"). More info
