Pendant Lobster Claw Plants (heliconia rostrata)

Rostrata Lobster Claw is one of the most beautiful, semi cold hardy Heliconia. In a few months, at maturity Rostrata will reach a height of six to eight feet and produces a stunning two to four foot pendant inflorescence. Heliconias are easy to grow plants with lush foliage and unmistakable tropical, long-lasting blooms. Highly versatile in the landscape, heliconias come in a large variety of colors and sizes allowing you to select the plant that is right for your location. Heliconia flowers are long-lasting, up to three weeks in a vase. Simply cut a stem 18″ or so, remove all foliage that will be in water, put the cut stem ends in vase with warm water and place in a draft-free location. Simply beautiful.
