Standleyi is a water and warmth loving heliconia that doesn't do well out of the tropics. It prefers a sheltered warm humid climate with very moist soil. The inflorescence can be 2 meters long and have over 50 bracts on it. If that isn't enough it literally drips a thick gooey nectar that attracts loads of nectar feeders. Truly magnificent must have for tropical collectors. Summer to Autumn flowering.
