Hi. I have another beauty to trade. This heliconia was collected in Bolivia by a good friend of mine in 1989. I believe it was 1,200 feet?(not sure) It gets about 5 to 6 feet tall. large banana puckered leaves. Flowers are tall upright lemon yellow. Have not been able to Id it. Maby a Hel.Ligulata? Blooms quickly from rhizome. Has now been blooming in my garden just outside Orlanso florida for 3 years. Email me. Thanks Robert

Hi all, Just a short update on this heliconia up for trade. My friend thinks it is a Heliconia lingulata. Not the spiral form but the normal one. It starts out yellow and ages with orange red on the tips of it's keels. really cool. I have enough to trade maby 4 times. Looking for other heliconias? or other neet plants. Thank You, Robert

do you have any left to trade. Please check out my plant and seed list and see if we can make a trade.
