Heliconia episcopalis x standleyi
'Flabellata' (Heliconiaceae)


'Flabellata' is an interesting heliconia, thought to be a hybrid between the erect Heliconia episcopalis and the pendent Heliconia standleyi.  'Flabellata' starts out erect, then begins to twist and hang.  It is a large plant, about 8-10 feet tall, and has red bracts with yellow tips.  Grows in partial shade to full sun.  Blooms primarily from May through August in Puerto Rico.
