CARING & GROWING:
Heliconia plant thrives in either partial shade or full sun locations. Heliconia plant is a perennial that will arise every year from the rhizomes. New stems will develop after the old plant has flowered, creating a continuous display of the flowers over the years. Freezing temperatures will damage or kill the rhizomes. They need fertilizing in spring for best flowering and again every two months until fall. Cut back spent flowers and leaves as they occur. Always remember to clean off the dead leaves and stems from the plant as soon as possible. You can also chop the extra leaves, as they cluster when the plant begins to age.
