The Purpose of Heliconia Society International (HSI)
The purpose of HSI is to increase the enjoyment and understanding of the Heliconia (Heliconiaceae) and related plants (members of the Cannaceae, Costaceae, Lowiaceae, Marantaceae, Musaceae, Strelitziaceae, and Zingiberaceae) of the order Zingiberales through education, research and communication.
Interest in Zingiberales and information on the cultivation and botany of these plants is rapidly increasing. HSI will centralize this information and distribute it to members. The Heliconia Society International, a nonprofit corporation, was formed in 1985 because of rapidly developing interest around the world in these exotic plants and their close relatives. We are composed of dues-paying members. Our officers and all participants are volunteers. Everyone is welcome to join and participate. HSI conducts a Biennial Meeting and International Conference.
