A Week of Flowers – Monday

I am joining Cathy at Words and Herbs for the second issue of a week in flowers. This is a Lobsterclaw Heliconia (Heliconia rostrata). One of my favorite tropicals, the flowers alway surprise me. They are set off by a Wild Coffee shrub, not advisable to drink it, but a nice Florida native.

    I think Heliconia is sold as a houseplant here, but I have never seen one in flower. Truly exotic! 😃

    LOVE! I fell in love with this flower the first time I saw it in Jamaica, and that love hasn’t changed at all. Thanks for sharing yours today!


  3. I always love these in the pavilion at Chelsea Flower show. Maybe one day I shall see them in their natural habitat
