I am trying to find the origin and name of this heliconia species. I wonder if it might be Hawaiian. Does nayone recognize it? Locally they are just called "antorchas" or torches.

3 species come up using this search, none native.

Here is a link that might be useful: Flora of the Hawaiian Islands Image Gallery / Botany, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution
