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.

    I have tried every plant delivery service possible, and I can’t recommend this high enough. The plants are the most full-of-life–beautiful plants and made it DAMAGE-FREE to NYC! I don’t even know how that’s possible (other plant services haven’t been able to perfect that either–trust me).

    Beautiful big plant! Hoping she perks up in the next few weeks. One of the stalks died immediately 🙁

  26. Rosalinde S. (verified owner)

    My plant arrived well packaged and it wasn’t dried out or damaged. It was a great size and I’ve planted it this weekend. I sure hope it blooms next spring. Thanks!

What is the size of the pot / average height for the Extra Large? Thanks!

1 year 6 months ago

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!

Is this plant meant to be kept indoors or outdoors?

11 months 25 days ago

You can do either. Our plants are shade grown so they either need bright indirect light indoors or complete shade outdoors.

I’m interested in buying the large, and wanted to know how tall it will be when it arrives… and how tall I can expect it to grow? Also, same question for the extra large. I plan to keep these indoors in a pot

10 months 25 days ago

Hi! Our large is typically 3-4ft tall including the pot, our XL is typically 4.5 to 5.5 ft tall including the pot.
