'Pendulata Spotty Stems' is a particularly nice and hardy "x Pendulata cross" between Heliconia subulata and H. pendula, which are two cool-hardy species, good for the subtropics. We selected this hybrid here in Tenerife in 2010.

- Leaves are like H. subulata but they are narrower and heavily waxy
- Stems are beautifully waxy and spotted with maroon blotches.
- Inflorescences are much like H. subulata, but they are longer and some will randomly twist.
- It grows as a tight clump, like H. pendula, with no running stolons as in H. subulata

The narrow leaves and tight clumping habit makes our Heliconia x 'Pendulata Spotty Stems' more resistant to wind and therefore to cold.
