Heliconia schiedeana (Hardy Lobster Claws)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 8-10, at least 72" tall Origin: Mexico

NEW! Heliconia schiedeana is the most cold hardy species of lobster claw. Although we have had it survive 10 degrees F in the ground, it requires two-year-old growth to produce flowers. Protection, such as a banana cage filled with mulch, should do the trick. When happy, the 6' tall stalk of bold thalia-like foliage is topped from summer through fall with upright, bright red, lobster-like inflorescences adorned with bright yellow flowers at the axils. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
