"Lobster Claw" - 'Heliconia rostrata.' "Also known as the False Bird of Paradise and Wild Plantain, the Lobster Claw’s cheerful flowers emerge from clumps of leaves that look like bananas. The reddish flower-like bracts actually hide the plant’s true flowers, which require birds with specialized beaks for pollination. An excellent landscape plant, the Lobster Claw can grow up to a height of 3.5’ tall and they bloom several times each year."
Lobster Claw* A fast-growing herbaceous perennial with stalks reaching 7 feet tall. Scarlet and yellow bracts emerge on second-year stalks. Plant in bright shade with moist, well-drained soil. USDA Hardiness Zones: 10B to 11
