This Tropical Beauty is the Centerpiece of Your Garden

Wonderfully exotic, the White Bird of Paradise is known for its flower that bears a close resemblance to a tropical bird. However, the blooms are almost secondary to your landscaping. It is the White Bird’s giant leaves that conjure up a tropical paradise. Sometimes, the plant is confused with a Traveler’s Palm, as they look similar when young. White Birds do not grow as big, nor do they form a palm-like trunk.

The White Bird is a clumping plant that grows multiple stems. It needs a large area to spread out and unfurl its glorious leaves. The plant is a moderate grower, but can reach 20 feet high and 6 feet wide. It will thrive in a warm bright location. Make sure to plant it in a space that will both accommodate its mature size, and protect its leaves from wind damage. Many use it as an accent near a home’s entrance, but it’s also a striking addition in a container on a pool deck or patio.

Hi Margaryta! Our Extra Large is our 12-14″/7 gallon sized pot. Our Extra Large is approximately 4-4.5ft including the nursery pot in this height. Our Extra large sizes are much more full compared to our Large size. Thanks!
