There are many different kinds of helioconias, but I think the rostrata is the most decorative of all. The flowers are being used more and more for parties and receptions in Santarém. As a matter of fact, they were part of the decor for a birthday party we attended last night. The flowers were put in tall glass vases along with some stems and other kinds of helioconia flowers and then the vase filled with water. All very pleasing to the eye. The attached image is of one of the flowers at Bosque Santa Lúcia.
