Looking for a non-invasive small growing Heliconia? Then look no further! Bucky is a fantastic variety, growing only to 2m with neat, dark green foligae and large red-orange flowers. A much better choice than the sometimes weedy and cold sensitive Heliconia psittacorum.
Bucky maintains neat foliage and a clean appearance when well looked after. Its small size makes it excellent for pots and tubs on a patio or veranda. Spring/Summer flowering.

Very low maintenance. Apply generous manure and/or compost around the plant for best results as this is a plant that will do much better in a rich, organic soil.
Use quality fertilizer such as Troforte or Organic Link to maintain vigorous growth. Prune away spent flowers and leaves if desired.
