I planted it late in the season, and never saw it flower. Can't remember what it is.

As you can see, each leaf has a dark vein running down it's center.

Thanks.

Ilima - sure looks like it, doesn't it? I suspected the plant might be from some curcuma rhizomes I had bought. Thanks for your help.

Also sometimes called "Bicolor Wonder". Which suits it!
