Unfolding

Unfolding

I really like the lines and the simple structure of this heliconia. The growth pattern of the spoon-like bracts allows for simple scaling and no matter how large they become, they won’t block each other’s growth. When a heliconia blooms, the actual flowers grow out of these bracts.
Happy Mother’s Day!
