Heliconia ‘Bucky’

Heliconia stricta cv. ‘Bucky’

Synonyms: None.

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.
