During December of 2011 through March of 2012, additional plantings along Yuquiyú’s Heliconia Trail brought the total number of heliconias to 827 comprising 38 species and 128 varieties. Our botanical garden will have been planted with well over 1,000 heliconias as new species and varieties are added by the end of 2012. That number includes only heliconias of large species and not the thousands of heliconias of the small species called psittacorums.
