Yellow Heliconia

These beautiful plants are known for a range of colored flowers predominantly seen in red, orange and yellow. They are mostly a tropical plant and are unsurprisingly related to the Bird of Paradise (of which the flowers look very similar) and also bananas (which look like a larger version of this plant). The flower produces nectar to attract pollinators such as hummingbirds. If you ever decide you want a tropical-looking garden, the inclusion of some different heliconias are a must and fairly easy to grow. The luscious green foliage and bright splash of flower color will certainly brighten up your day. Happy weekend everyone!

    1. Lol, thanks Margaret. We have just moved apartments this week (and we were unsure of exactly when the move would be), so much of my stuff has been trapped in boxes for a while and my life in complete disarray. I’m itching to paint so much that I even dream about it. Hopefully things settle down soon and I can find some much needed ‘me’ time!
