Lobster Claw Heliconia
My Lobster Claw did not bloom the last two summers, I assume the cold of previous winters caused this as I have had blooms for several prior years. They did however multiply abundantly so the cold did not kill them. Since this winter has been mild, I wonder if they will bloom. I can't remember if they bloomed on new shoots. The old ones have dried leaves and look pretty bad. Don't know if I should cut these down and wait for new plants or vigorously trim. Does anyone remember what summer month they bloom. I've had Lobster Claws several years. The last two summers was the first time they did not bloom. Help, Someone!
