Heliconia caribaea 'Prince of Darkness'
Perfect for screening where height is required. ‘Prince of Darkness’ has unique shaped bracts which offer an interesting contrast to other widely available heliconias. The deep red/burgundy bracts appear in early to mid summer. A great choice where a point of difference is desired. Limited availability.

Height: Approx 4m - 5m

Note: It's not all about the height. When opting for a larger plant, you are selecting a plant that is overall more advanced and mature than the smaller size. The root ball is more established therefore supporting quicker growth.
The supplied height above is a guide. We strive hard to supply the best value plants and will generally, where possible, supply above the standard supplied heights. Occasionally due to seasonal variation and demand will need to supply standard height plants.
