Heliconia Stricta. Dwarf Jamaican Heliconia.

The Heliconia Stricta brings an amazing tropical touch as a Houseplant or planted into a sunny border through Summer. One of the most popular Heliconias because of its small size, its vibrant coloured blooms and ease of care. Growing in clumps only up to around 3ft tall it has long smooth oblong shaped dark greep leathery leaves. The actual flowers themselves are quite insignificant and only last a around a week but they are protected by eyecatching vibrantly coloured red orange bracts which are extremely long lasting. 

Perfect for bringing an exotic feel to your garden, patio, conservatory or greenhouse.
