In spite of its name, it has more in common with the different species of ginger, including turmeric, than with tulips. It can be purchased as a cut flower or grown indoors.

The popular name of this plant originates from the similarity of its inflorescences, stems, and leaves to those of tulips. Only when they curl around the edges of the bracts can one view the real blooms.

From a cluster of narrow, lance-shaped, dark green leaves, each inflorescence emerges atop a stiff, reed-like stem that reaches a height of 2 inches.
