H. mariae X pogonantha cv Bushmaster
Also Lnown as DinosaurRated 4/5 based on 2 reviews.
This cross between Beefsteak and Pogonantha has slightly less imbricated bracts. It tends to flower all year. We recommend it around swimming pools. Another truly awesome, highly desirable heliconia.
Also better flowering in the subtropics (i.e. Brisbane, Sunshine Coast) than Beefsteak.
|Growing Conditions||Well drained rich soil. Full sun to part shade. Not sure how far it will go to.|
|Flowering Season||Year round stunner!|
|Max Size||6 m|

H. Bushmaster13 October 2017Arrived in good order. I have planted this heliconia into its permanent position which I have prepared previously. I have never had trouble planting and growing heliconias. I keep them well mulched, fertilise regularly, and water well.
