Products » Heliconia » Psittocorums

Psittocorums are fast growing smaller heliconias that flower prolifically all year round. Plants and flowers range in size with the halloween, Tropica and golden torch varieties being the tallest with folaige that can grow to around 2 metres to the Petra, Parakheet and Red X that stay around that one metre in height. The plants are Rysome growers, producing a new flower stem from an existing stem. Once the stem has flowered it will not reflower. They will naturally fall over if left or even better why not cut them and put them in a vase!!

These plants are low maintenance and work well when you need to fill an area. If you are planting within your garden be aware that they will invade across a garden bed but when contained or used in an area where their edge can be mown they create a lovely display of colour and give you flowers all year round.

These plants grow particularly well in the tropics but can be grown down as far as Brisbane.
