Red Alien Plant

While visiting Kuangsi Falls in Luangprabang, among the foliage of green that surrounded the falls, there was a random single hanging strand of what looked like thick red petals tipped with bright yellow.  It was a stark contrast to all the green plants and the blue water.  Although its petals appear tightly formed, they do eventually open up.

It's called heliconia or lobster claw plant.  But I think it looks like a funky alien plant.
