This plant is spectacular in its' second year. It does not tolerate Florida sun. Last year it was very unhappy (and so was I) and I thought it was a dud. Overwintered in large pot, died back (it is a curcuma after all)and then it came back beautifully this Spring. Pot is in very bright light from the South - no direct sun touches it. Has masses of leaves, strong new shoots and dark red stems. Definitely a plant for patient, hands-on gardeners. Try it, you will enjoy the challenge.
