Red Holiday – Heliconia angusta Vellozo cv. Red Holiday
Commonly known as Red Christmas, this smaller Heliconia is great for understory planting, a feature plant in the garden or large pot. It’s beautiful red and white flowers bloom in the winter months. It is tight clumping and has nice foliage. Can handle full sun, however it looks its best when planted in part shade. A must have for your tropical garden.
Growing tips: Heliconia prefer moist well drained soil. Applying a good organic fertiliser and mulch will encourage fast, healthy growth.
