Cape York Lily Australia

By admin| November 2, 2009|

Naturally distributed through the tropical areas of Australia The Cape York Lily (Curcuma Australasica) is also in full bloom with its striking electric pink colour. It's considered good 'bush tucker' and is a native turmeric of the ginger family. It dies back in the drier Winter months before remerging from underground rhizomes with the onset of the wet season. The onset of spring has seen the beautiful Cape York Lily emerging in the gardens of Thala Beach Lodge.
