Description: 
A beautiful flower - several buds on the spike - but only one flowers at a time. It has a tinge of purple - but is very light in color. A beautiful flower. The storage roots have a delicate and very attractive flavor. Flower orchid like - I have called it Aulotandra or Curcuma, not being able to determine from the key which it is.
