How to Grow

The 'Lady Di' thrives in full to partial sunlight, relishing the warmth and humidity typical of tropical climates. It requires well-draining soil, enriched with organic matter. Perfect for USDA zones 10-12, this plant revels in temperatures above 60°F (15°C).

Care Tips

Water the 'Lady Di' regularly, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged. Given its tropical nature, it appreciates high humidity, so consider misting the plant or placing it near a water source if grown outside of its natural habitat. Fertilize with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer during the growing season for optimal growth and vibrant blooms.


The Heliconia Psittacorum 'Lady Di' serves as a show-stopping addition to tropical gardens, poolside landscapes, or large containers. Its unique blooms also make it a popular choice for tropical floral arrangements.

Planting Tips

When planting, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Mix in compost or rotted manure to enrich the soil. Plant the 'Lady Di' at the same depth it was in its previous container, ensuring adequate spacing between plants to accommodate its mature size.


Regularly remove dead leaves and spent blooms to encourage new growth and keep the plant looking fresh. If grown in cooler climates, consider bringing the plant indoors or providing some form of protection during colder months.
