Heliconia rostrata


Heliconias enjoy a shady location.



  1. i am so happy that we can walk, breathless, awe-struck, in Prospero’s garden again – even if it is an exiled garden now, the magic nourishing it is the same –


  2. I am just getting back to your blog to look at the beauties that you grow. Lots of patience required when growing this one from seed. Lovely photograph.


    • This was grown from a rhizome, Yvonne. But i have grown other heliconias from seed. They are easy to germinate provided that the seeds are fresh and that they are kept very warm during germination. The plants bloom in sort order from a rhizome. It could take many years from seed.
