Heliconia species for sure. Possibly this could be Heliconia wagneriana. There are so many introduced varieties in Heliconia (ornamental) with different shades of colours of the inflorescence and the foliage, one should be cautious while narrowing down to species

Yes this should be Heliconia wagneriana.



Ornamental Heliconia seen on 29th March.

This looks different from the Erect Lobster Claw, Heliconia stricta.
Could be Heliconis wagneriana ‘Rainbow’ as per the following link…..!heliconia wagneriana ‘rainbow’/zoom/c1949/image1ubn
