Heliconia mariae "Beefsteak"

Prehistoric flower!

Sold Out
Available Spring 2017 in Limited Numbers

If you are thinking of buying one grab it while you can because we never see Heliconia mariae for sale. Beefsteak heliconia has the thickest chunckiest bracts of any heliconia in our collection. It is similiar to it's close relative H. mariae cross pogonantha but even chunkier and more prehistoric looking. It has stightly less cold tolerance and is probably best suited to a tropical or very warm subtropical garden with high humidity and juicy conditions.

Absolute must have for collectors we will have a very limited amount of seedling plants available in spring 2017.
