Em you can narrow it down since it is blooming now. Many of the Curcumas bloom in early spring before the leaves and others in summer.

Well, I guess we'll see....arctic front is heading our way and I don't have time to save everybody! Thanks Em and Rose for responses. Will you two be going to Jeri's Swap in May? Will be fun. I don't know what I'm looking forward to most...the swap...or the nursery run to Forest Hill the day before. Missed it last year and had to listen to all the great buys they made at the nurseries the next day at the swap!
