They are more specifically Heliconia Angusta Red Christmas (cv Holiday). They flower here in Australia in the colder months, June - Sept, but around Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere, hence their name.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Out in the Yard: 10 Private Retreats
This low-slung, brightly striped chair is the perfect spot to sit back and relax with a good book. Although it's close to the house, the surrounding ferns offer a feeling of being in the middle of a dense forest. Tip: If you have a shady area of the yard, ferns are a great choice. Not only do they fill a lot of space, but they are also low maintenance and offer texture that's unique to the rest of the yard.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Tropical Garden Style
Ferns like these are ideal fillers in a tropical design. They not only add both structure and softness to the space, but the ferns will benefit from the shade provided by surrounding plants. Wooden steps to a beach chair overlooking the garden add a beachy touch to the scene.
Becky Harris added this to Small Decks Hold Loads of Potential
Let tropical foliage come right up to your small deck's edges. Squares composed of deck planks continue the transition from this space into the rest of the lush garden.More:Harvest the Beauty of a Patio Garden11 Inspirational Small PorchesContractor Tips: Build a Top-Notch Deck
Frank Organ added this to Dare to Go Gray in the Garden
These wooden steps, weathered to a silver-gray, rise through the bright-green Brazilian tree fern (Blechnum ‘Silver Lady’) and the red and white flower spikes of the Heliconia angustifolia ‘Red Christmas’.
