Red Christmas, named such because of its winter blooms (Northern Hemisphere, when it’s usually Christmas time), is a fantastic shade-loving Heliconia. It is comparatively small, reaching only 1-2m, with striking red and white flowers in the Australian winter.
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.
Suited for shade
Spectacular contrasting flowers
Small size, lush foliage
