Default Red leaf heliconia finally flowered

After 2 years my red leaf heliconia has finally flowered - I could have wished for a more spectacular flower after the wait however! No idea of the name of the thing!

Hey, Cassie! That's a nice shot of the heliconia. I have been searching for a red-leaved form of heliconia. I came across one at a conservatory in Japan back in October. They though it was called Heliconia 'Illustris', but I haven't been able to located one here in the states. Any chance that you have any pups off of that one available? I'm not sure what would be involved to mail one to TX but I'd sure be interested if you think we can mange it. Feel free to PM if you'd like!
