Stunning New Variety with Dark Blushing
We would like to introduce a new heliconia to the world. It was bred here at El Arish Tropical Exotics and we have named it Heliconia Taumalolo. This beautiful heliconia was a naturally produced seed that popped up and grew at our nursery. We believe it to be a bihai but can’t be sure of the parentage. Although like Nappi Red it has less yellow and has a deep dark blush on the outer parts of the bract. A strong grower we believe it will only get better and better. Our new beauty is currently in production and should be available Spring 2018 for sale. We recommend it for tropical gardens anywhere above Northern New South Wales as we cannot be sure of it’s cold hardiness at this point. Taumalolo is a striking heliconia that is an excellent cut flower and attractive landscaping heliconia with a compact upright habit to two meters. Taumalolo has been named for NQ Cowboys forward Jason Taumalolo. We believe it to be the first and only heliconia in the world to be named after a Rugby League player.
