Does anyone on here grow Heliconias?
I just bought a beautiful Heliconia (False Bird of Paradise) at Lowe's. Just gorgeous! It is related to Banana plants.
Hope someone out there has one and can tell me about them.
From what I have read about they may not bloom in zones colder than z10, because they die back.
I plan on bringing mine inside until next summer. It can sit right next to the gigantic Rubber tree in here. This room is my atrium all winter for many of my tropical plants, so that I can enjoy them when it is cold and nasty out and all my beautiful gardens outside have gone to sleep for the winter.
I would like to hear from anyone on here who may have experience and/or personal knowledge about growing them.
