Of Sea Cycas and Heliconia

I am extremely attracted to heliconias for the simple reason that their bracts are very colourful , firm and relatively lasting as cut flowers. Thus this morning I was hunting for heliconias in my garden for my first flower arrangement. Below is the result.

The green fronds are from the sea cycas plant or what locals here call 'pakis laut'. They have been given an extra cut to match the size of the glass container and the heliconias.
