Heliconia Rostrata Ikebana

Heliconia Rostrata Ikebana.  Is it pretty? I made it today.

Heliconia, derived from the Greek word helikonios, is a genus of about 100 to 200 species of flowering plants native to the Americas and the Pacific Ocean islands west to Indonesia. Common names for the genus includes lobster-claws, wild-plantains, or false-bird-of-paradise. The last term refer to their close simililarity to the bird of paradise flowers (Strelitzia), collectively these plants are also simply referred to as heliconias.” (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heliconia )

I was tired from my work yesterday so I stayed home the whole day.  It’s better so I’ll have enough rest before I go back to work. &(^._.*)&  This flower arrangement made me a little busy.

There are several heliconias in the home garden, but I choose the rostrata.
