My Heliconia (Blooms from My Garden Series)

In the Blooms from My Garden series, I will share photos of flowers that I have taken from my garden.

This is a Heliconia Rostrata, with the flowers in red, yellow and a tinge of green facing downwards. When this photo was taken, it was planted in a big pot. But after sometime, it outgrew the pot and I had to transplant it. I put it into our planter box and it continue to grow very well together with my Birds of Paradise. It would bloom from time to time and usually the blooms last for 3-4 weeks. The blooms remind me of firecrackers that we burn during Chinese New Year.
I love seeing my Heliconia blooms. Isn't it beautiful?

The flower is interesting... especially if planted in a shady area.. The sparkling color of red and yellow is refreshing.

Its truly a beautiful exotic flower, amazes me that that the flowers are actually heavy and the plant manage to support it.
I had this ones but because its very bushy and also attract a lot of ants, I had removed it from my garden.
