Heliconia Walk

Jurong Bird Park holds the honour of being Asia's first Heliconia Repository. This honour was earned when the Heliconia Society International designated the Park as an official Heliconia Collection Centre in 1989. With 167 species and cultivars of Heliconia, the Park is proud to have one of the largest collection in the region today.

These unusual-looking flowering plants, native to Central and South America, New Guinea, are best known for their exotic blooms.

The Bird Connection

Unlike most other flowering plants, Heliconias depend on birds – in particular hummingbirds – for pollination.

The Importance of Plants In The Park

Birds come hand in hand with plants. That is why, Jurong Bird Park recognises the need to understand plants in order to better understand the natural surroundings of birds. To this end, the Park employs staff who are as knowledgeable about plants as they are about birds.
