My First Cut Heliconia

>> Friday, February 12, 2010

When I planted this in the landscape several months ago, I was under the impression that it was a full sized heliconia.  However, it is a dwarf variety, most likely heliconia stricta 'Jamaican Dwarf'.  I can't complain much though.  They are great cut flowers that will last about 2 weeks.  There are three more flowers on the plant.  I just hope it keeps producing!

BEFORE - Heliconia in ground

AFTER - Cut and in a vase
