Hanging Lobster Claw (Heliconia rostrata)
Highly sought after for its unusual and colorful inflorescences, Hanging Lobster Claw has pendulous blooms of striking red and yellow bracts that often reach 3’ in length. When grown in a pot, it starts blooming once the plant reaches 4-5’ tall and the amazing inflorescences will appear one after another creating a spectacular show for the gardener to enjoy. Grow in full to partial sun and rich soil with lots of water and fertilizer. We saw this heliconia blooming in all its glory at the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden on the Big Island. What a spectacular sight! When grown directly in the ground, Heliconia rostrata can reach upwards of 10-15’ tall.
