The Greek root helikonios is where the word and name for helconia derives. This by far, isn’t the only name known to this plant. Some of the nicknames that are popular are imposter bird of paradise, wild plantains and lobster claws. It is a widely popular plant even with a host of other names that it goes by. Its popularity is in part due to the fact that it is beautiful and that it looks like many plants that are much more difficult to grow.
