Motivated by observations about twining plants we study the static equilibrium solutions of untwisted, elastic rods in a helical shape. This work is an extension and specialization of [2]. We extend it by considering rods with intrinsic curvature and we specialize it by only considering helical solutions. Biology motivates these considerations.
