Heliconia psittacorum 


A vigorous plant and prolific year-round bloomer, 2-3 feet tall.  Can grow in partial shade to full sun.  'Sassy' is truly a rainbow of colors... bracts are hot magenta toward the tips, fading into apple green on the lower half, and covered with a frosty waxy bloom.  The true flowers are bright orange with a dark green tip, and contrast with a light greenish yellow ovary.
