Heliconia rostrata
'Misahualli' (Heliconiaceae)


    'Misahualli' differs from the typical form of Heliconia rostrata in that it has wider bracts spaced closer on the rachis, giving it a more impressive appearance.  It is of medium size, about 6-8 feet tall, and has spectacular bright red bracts with yellow tips and a thick green border.  'Misahualli' blooms from March through July in Puerto Rico.
