Heliconia collinsiana x bourgeana
'Pedro Ortiz' (Heliconiaceae)


    Thought to be a natural hybrid between the pendent Heliconia collinsiana and the erect Heliconia bourgeana, 'Pedro Ortiz' begins looking like an erect inflorescence, but then starts to twist and hang down like a pendent.  Bracts are full, and a beautiful solid pink purple color.  Grows well in partial shade to full sun.  An erect plant habit, from 6-8 feet tall.  Blooms from December through May in Puerto Rico.
