This is a striking erect heliconia with a flower that gets as much as 3 feet long! It is a large plant, about 8-10 feet tall, and has fat orange bracts with blood red spots. The spots sometimes coalesce into blotches, and the rachis is typically red. Grows in partial shade to full sun.
The plant's banana-like leaves grow directly from thick, quickly spreading rhizomes or underground, lateral stems. The medium green leaves are held on long petioles (leaf stalks). Scarce.
Zone 10+ or container and greenhouse.
