First time I'm seeing the flower of this herb
and they look so sweet :)
love the soft pastel lilac color of each petal's end
This is one of the collection of herbs found in the Secret Garden
labelled as Curcurma 'Laddawan'
a horticultural cultivar.
"Curcuma Longa" pictured above is as tall my friend's daughter Sara
who was busy and serious with her so-called routine watering task
in their home garden :)
These leaves are sought after for our local cuisine especially "rendang"
and it is irresistibly fragrant!
Commonly known as turmeric ginger leaves or as
we call it in our Malay language
Speaking of rendang makes my mouth waters..
Gotta cook it!
