Lobster claw flower

A beautiful display of Lobster Claw flowers ~ Heliconia rostrata. In the garden, these beauties attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

I know nothing about this plant. My cousin posted it on Facebook and I copied it. Remember: lobster is a shellfish; thus, ancient Israelites would have been prohibited from eating it. I guess we can still enjoy the beauty of the blooms.

  1. I think the plant suggests a clutch of very hungry baby birds in a nest!
