For the Junglo Walking series I went to the garden of the Heliconias.
Since I feel super stylish today I'm wearing my new ones Junglo Leaf Green, to complement the environment.
Heliconia is a genus of flowering plants native to the tropical Americas, but some are indigenous to some islands in the western Pacific and the Moluccas.
Many Heliconia species are found in the tropical forests of these regions.
Most species are listed as vulnerable or data deficient by the IUCN Red List of threatened species.
Several species are widely cultivated as ornamental plants and some are naturalized in Florida, Gambia and Thailand.
Common names for the genus include lobster claws, beak of toucan, wild plantain or false bird of paradise.
The last term refers to their close resemblance of flowers to birds of paradise.
