... I'd thought I'd post this towering ginger here (possibly Heliconia), as I see there are people in this forum who are familiar with the family. If anyone could identify this for me, I'd appreciuate it. No flowers, but I think I see spikes of seeds (?).
I know this isn't a palm but...
it is indeed a Heliconia but there are many dozens of varieties and species, and most look similar. Without flowers, I have no idea how to tell them apart
Yeah, I appreciate that. Perhaps I can narrow it down if I knew how many species grow to be this tall.
