Perhaps the tropical jungle version of the red poinsettia, Heliconia “Red Christmas” seems almost too perfect for the season:

With deep green leaves and eye-popping blooms that are have Christmas Red bracts with white flowers, its as if nature decided to throw a holiday party.

We’ve got Heliconia “Red Christmas” blooming in 3 gallon pots at the nursery now- they grow well in pots (even indoors near a sunny window) and in the landscape.

This heliconia blooms in late fall/winter, gets to about 3-4 feet, likes rich organic soil and a partly sunny location- a bright spot with dappled sun is ideal, as well as under a screen enclosure.
