I am Sexy Pink


I’m the ravishing flower known as Sexy Pink, but my formal friends at Kukuiula’s Upcountry Community Farm call me Heliconia Chartacea. Roger Peckenpaugh, the farm’s project manager, knows all my secrets: I’m originally from Ecuador, but love Kauai. I’m seven feet tall, my flower hangs down and swirls beautifully, and I bloom a brilliant orangey blush all year round. Back home, I’m pollinated by hummingbirds, but there are no hummingbirds on Kauai, so I produce no seeds. Still, you can always harvest me at the farm or find me at the Wednesday’s Culinary Market at The Shops at Kukuiula. I’m gorgeously exotic as a cut flower in any decor; just imagine me in your new Hawaii luxury real estate home.
