Heliconia Latispatha is a native to Central and South America, the typical paddle shaped upright leaves form but have a very thin maroon coloured margin, with upright flowers with the bracts forming in spirals. An evergreen herbaceous perennial, the cultivated variety ‘Orange Gyro’ produces bright orange flowers, and can bloom throughout the year in warmer climates, in cooler climates typically only in Spring and Summer. Grows to a height of between 2 to 4 meters. Consider frost tender as frost will damage the leaves, and rhizomes are hardy down to just under freezing, protection should be given under 5°C.

Greenhouse conditions recommended.

    Sowing; Put the seed in a container, with some sphagnum moss, which is moistened with clean water, label it, with a date, and seal the container. (This can be a ziplock bag, jar, plastic box – anything so long as it is clear). Keep the container somewhere in bright light, but not direct sunlight, and as the seeds germinate, the plants can be extracted from the container once they have one or two leaves, and planted up in small pots for growing on.

    Be aware these seeds can take up to a year to germinate, since they have a very hard coat (it feels like ceramic) and piercing this is very difficult. Mechanical methods usually result in damaging the seed.
