  • I would say that flower still isn't fully open - if it opens more, post another shot. – Bamboo May 25 '15 at 11:19
  • Can it be bird of paradise? I thought bird of paradise flowerhas a long blue lip like structure like a bird? But this flower has nothing like this:( – trina May 25 '15 at 11:34
  • No, its not Strelitzia reginae (Bird of Paradise), flowers are not like this. – Bamboo May 25 '15 at 12:04

Same story as the other plant you asked about - that's a bud and it will open when the time is right. Patience my friend... as to what it is, it looks a bit like Strelitzia reginae (Bird of Paradise plant) from the leaves - except the bud shape is wrong. If no one else knows what it is, please post another photo when the flower has opened.


Yes, got it, having seen the new photograph - it's Heliconia psittacorum 'Andromeda' and its not quite finished opening fully yet. It's a perennial native to the Caribbean and the north of South America, but also often listed as a Malaysian plant. The common name for this plant is Parrot Plant, though that also refers to other varieties of Heliconia.

  • Actually I was trying to find bird of paradise. – trina May 13 '15 at 15:34
  • @trina: Bird of Paradise is just another name for Strelitzia. – Stephie May 13 '15 at 15:52
  • Bamboo this is the latest picture of the flower. Can u identity it? – trina Jun 8 '15 at 12:25
  • @trina - see updated answer – Bamboo Jun 8 '15 at 13:03
  • Sorry for my ignorance but is this a type of orchid? – trina Jun 8 '15 at 14:48
