Magnificent chunky red and yellow pendulous flowers.

Magnificent chunky red and yellow pendulous flowers make this a fantastic specimen heliconia. It's perfect around pool beds and anywhere where you want an over the top Tropical Baroque feeling. Here in the Wet Tropics it grows quite easily but SE Queenslanders will find it may prefer a little extra pampering in a very good microclimate ( If you aren't sure what a microclimate is please refer to our blog articles)

Growing Conditions I would never recommended this south of Queensland but a collector in Sydney has this growing in their garden. well drained rich soil, full sun to part shade.
Flowering Season year round
Max Size 5m
Origin Costa Rica and Nicaragua
Temperature tropical maybe warm subtropical in an excellent microclimate
