Heliconia species

Heliconia species

Heliconias are tropical to subtropical clumping plants native to central and South America, Carribean and certain south pacific regions

There are hundreds of varieties of heliconias ranging from about 70cm to 5m tall. They are a vigorous grower producing many different coloured bracts.

They make fantastic cut flowers and can be used as a screen. Here in Queensland they usually have their growing season from around October until March. They like rich organic soil and regular complete fertiliser during their growing season to produce their amazing flowers. Remove any dead flowers or foliage to encourage new growth.

Do not overwater Heliconia during cooler months as it can cause the rhizomes to rot. Also do not plant them in poor draining soils.

We usually stock Heliconias from October until about March.
