COLOMBIA

The most beautiful flower: Heliconia


In Colombia you could find a big, if not the biggest, variety of colorful and fragrant blooms orchids species. Orchids are decent, even though their name comes from comes from the Greek language literally meaning “testicle” because of the shape of the root. I have been said that Colombia has the world´s richest concentration of orchid varieties.
Well, I have already seen plenty of them, all right orchids are magical but in the competition with the simpler banana family plant called Heliconia, I would vote for Heliconia!
