Heliconia ‘Kawauchi’

Heliconia bihai x caribaea ‘Kawauchi’

Another excellent tall-growing Heliconia. Second only to Hot Rio Nights as a favorite for screening, Kawauchi boasts some of the largest and finest blooms out there. Robust and tolerant of Brisbane conditions, Kawauchi will form a neat, dense clump over time, making it ideal for hiding ugly fences, neighbours, etc.

Care

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.
