A heliconia aka Lobster Claw from my mom's garden.
Did you know that the heliconia is related to the banana, canna and ginger? The actual heliconia flower is fairly insignificant. What most people would call the 'flower' is actually a group of colourful specialised leaves, called bracts. The true flowers are hidden inside these bracts.
