Pink Siam Tulip

Description
The Pink Siam Tulip is an eye-catching perennial with a tropical feel. It pairs nicely with other tropical plants, like hibiscus and elephant ears. Prefers plenty of water, so it would be a nice companion planting on the same watering schedule as the elephant ear. Despite its common name, Summer Tulip, and its handsome shape reminiscent of tulip blooms, the Siam Tulip is actually a member of the ginger family. It's a rebloomer, producing soft pink flower spikes throughout summer. Useful for drawing attention in your borders. It prefers warm zones, but it's lovely in a patio pot. You can put the container wherever your landscape needs a bit of tropical flair, and easily move inside through winter in zones lower than 8. Curcuma alismatifolia

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.
