Beautiful and exotic - Heliconia are stunning and dramatic, but prone to
browning if they are bruised or scratched. Unless you are planning on a
large display, stick to the medium and smaller varieties. Some varieties
are more affected by seasonal blooming and loss of blooming due to weather
conditions. We will substitute when necessary. The lighter and smaller the
heliconia, the easier to arrange. Plan on large vases and some foam and
tying for the largest heliconias. Add a lot of larger foliage, areca
palms, monstera, some ti-leaves, and smaller foliage to fill.
When to order -
