Pendent Heliconia “Rostrata Ten Day”

Pendents are one of the most dramatic flowers in the Heliconia family and our “Rostrata Ten Day” are putting on quite a show this year!

The Rostrata plant itself is upright and grows up to 15′ tall. The colorful, waxy flowers hang down from the top of sturdy, large leaf stalks in hues of reds, oranges, yellows, and greens. Growing in masses, we’re taken back to the flowers’ origin in the jungles of Peru.

The vibrant pendents are a favorite flower in some of our larger, more exotic arrangements. As you can guess from the name, the flowers last 10 days or longer as a cut flower.
