This orange flowering heliconia is a vigourous plant that grows to about 1m high and flowers reliably every Summer. It is tropical plant, so won't tolerate frost and will tend to go dormant over winter in cooler areas.
This is an unnamed variety, but we like it both for it's prolific flowers which make long-lasting cut flowers, and also for it's lush foliage.
The plants supplied for this price are bare-rooted rhizomes with the leaves trimmed back. They will have at least one, usually more, good growing points. They transplant well like this and the leaves will grow back quickly.
