Vivero Anones has one of the largest collections of fine Heliconias, ornamental Gingers, and other plants in the order Zingiberales, and after the devastation by Hurricane Maria last September 2017, we can happily say that all are coming back strong. Although Vivero Anones is now closing to the public,  some plants are still available, mostly as bare root divisions (rhizomes).

We usually don't ship rhizomes, but shipping of small amounts of rhizomes could be arranged to addresses in the USA only; just email us. For tips on growing these plants from seed, please check our article "Growing Heliconias from Seed" or just click here. This article was originally published in the Bulletin of the Heliconia Society of Puerto Rico.

You may come and dig your own rhizomes, just call us to make arrangements. On the day and time we schedule, bring your own tools and bags, old jeans and boots, and you're off to a good start! Rhizome digging may not be easy for some, so we're always happy to help. As we're in the process of closing, this could be your last opportunity to acquire some rare plants for a reasonable fee.

Check our Photo Galleries of flowers! Enjoy beautiful photos of these tropical flowers checking these links: Heliconias and Gingers. For other beautiful heliconia photos, please check the website of the Heliconia Society of Puerto Rico,

EN ESPAÑOL: Tenemos una de las colecciones mas grandes de heliconias y jengibres ornamentales de Puerto Rico, y estamos cerrando! Si interesa rizomas, podemos prepararle una orden para ser recogida, o le permitimos que venga y los saque. Nos llama o envía un correo, y nos ponemos de acuerdo para su visita. No enviamos rizomas por correo, pero podemos hacer arreglos si se trata de cantidades pequeñas. Ya no tenemos semillas disponible, pero quedan rizomas y algunas plantas en tiesto. Pueden ver fotos de muchas de estas flores en nuestra galería de fotos de flores ("Heliconia Photos").
