I was in Mexico earlier this summer and ran across these as well. Pretty cool looking.
The maid cut and arranged these in our bedroom every day. I did find them in the wild down there also.
The plant is Strelitzia Reginae if you are interested (also known as Bird of Paradise).
Thanks for the info...
Ah, thanks Steph for the info. The first thing I thought was "Streliziae", but I would not have known it's common English name. There are plenty (and I mean "PLENTY"!!!) of those on the island of Madeira in the Atlantic Ocean (off the west African coast), too. Beautiful flowers. However, this photo is overexposed, and some parts are lost for being blown (and non-recoverably so, I should think).
Separate names with a comma.
