Origin & History
Native to the tropical Americas and the Western Pacific, the Helconia's color combination purple-blue fruit, copper banana-like leaves, and an ivory or pink midriff is seen in few other flowers. The H. Psitlacorum heliconia flower is especially distinctive, for its greenish-yellow flowers and black spots bear a remarkable resemblance to a parrot's feathers.
