For my birthday, my wife bought me some Heliconia Bahai (bah-hi). Heliconia are my favorite plant and cover over 200 species. Although they don’t flourish in the winter months in Florida, they really come to life in the wet, hot, rainy summer. Here’s a photo of the first new flower beginning to bloom. Later, these two bracts will grow to 9 or 10 and it will be stunning. This plant is over 7 feet tall! If you know what this particular cultivar is please let me know in the comments.
