This heliconia hides its flowers within colorful, waxy-looking bracts. This was in a Sunshine (farmers') Market bouquet in Kauai. I painted an acrylic study of it on an 8 x 10 inch canvas board several years ago. It's another candidate for the lower left corner of the rooster painting (see posts, below), although it might not work with its very tall growing habit.
