Heliconia psittacorum


I was so excited to find beginning bracts on my Heliconias this morning. As best I could determine, they would grow in ground here and possibly come back after frost kills them to the ground. I elected to grow in containers. I bought just one last fall, kept it over the winter inside and divided it this spring into two.

I've changed my mind about containers. If I'm going to drag hoses all summer, I may as well just put group everything and drag one more hose over to a cluster of containers. The Bird of Paradise is unfurling yet another leaf. I hope we see it bloom before summer's end.

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
