Hello dear friends!
Continuing my series of tropical flowers, here we have a very colored and strange Heliconia.
Hope you like it.
I wish a lovely w-end to everybody!
Big hug from,

The heliconia plants are of Neotropical origin, particularly from the northwestern region of South America there are approximately 180 described species in Heliconia. This is one of the most important genera of tropical flowers, especially psittacorum Heliconia species.
Heliconia, derived from the Greek word helikonios, is a genus of about 100 to 200 species of flowering plants native to the tropical Americas and the Pacific Ocean islands west to Indonesia. Common names for the genus include lobster-claws, wild plantains or false bird-of-paradise. The last term refers to their close similarity to the bird-of-paradise flowers (Strelitzia). Collectively, these plants are also simply referred to as heliconias.Wikipedia
