Tropical Flower Names

Some of the flowers within the beach garland include the Strelitzia bird of paradise, the Lobster Claw (Heliconia rostrata), and Ginger (Zingiberaceae).

They also included Maraca Ginger (Zingiber spectabilis), Protea, and Orchids.

Exotic Foliage

A lush selection of foliage is paired with and then intertwined in the garland.

It complements the look and feel of exotic, colorful blooms.

The variety of leaves includes Dieffenbachia, also called the leopard lily.

Split-leaf Philodendron (Monstera deliciosa) and Majesty Palm (Ravenna rivularis) were woven in too.
