Javanese Ginger

Curcuma xanthorrhiza

Javanese Ginger Flower

This species bears a striking similarity to Cape York Turmeric. It differs in that the flower bracts are a deeper pink/purple colour as is the dark strip that runs up the centre of the leaf. Often used medicinally, in Bali a delicious drink is made by cooking dried slices of rhizome in water with palm sugar.
Other Names: Temulawak
