Some say the Bird of Paradise or Strelitzia Reginae is named for brightly colored birds in flight. Others believe it resembles a sunbird drinking water. Still others find that it looks like a colorful crane’s head. This South African beauty makes a bold statement in bright orange, purple, blue and white playing off evergreen leaves.

Best with full sun to partial shade, its flower is considered a monocot and provides a seasonal bloom. Of course, we know it’s a dramatic ornamental addition to landscaping, but it also works well for container gardening.  If you’re going to grow it indoors, make sure to find a sunny spot with moderate temperatures. Remember though,  it is toxic to animals and children, if ingested.

The Bird of Paradise grows up to 4 feet in height with a 2 to 3 foot spread. Plant in rich soil and make sure to monitor the amount of fertilizer and compost you use. It’s wind resistant, does well in drier regions, and it’s great for coastal regions, too. It’s extremely sensitive to cold, however, and needs to be well protected from any kind of frost.

    Beautiful, healthy plant that arrived in great condition despite the wicked beating the box sustained. I have several PlantVine plants and they are all thriving.

    I’m going to be completely honest I was hesitant at first since this was my first time purchasing from this company.

    After purchasing from the company I am more than impressed with the quality and size of the plant i received, it didn’t take too long to ship but when it arrived it was packed very securely I highly recommended buying this plant from here you will not be disappointed I’m planning on definitely purchasing more plants from PlantVine soon.

  6. Nathan (verified owner)

    Arrive healthy and well rooted. Beautiful plant.

  7. Sean (verified owner)

    The quality of the plant was excellent! I am so grateful I was able obtain this variety, as it is not sold at most garden centers in the upper midwest. During shipment, a couple of the taller leaves were partially damaged; I don’t think the support stake was quite long enough. Also, the outer box did not indicate top/bottom, only the inner one did which was odd, although I’m not sure if package handlers would even treat the package any differently if those labels were present. Finally, I would’ve gladly paid for upgraded, faster shipping if that had been an option.

    Plant had some broken stems and several leaves looked like they’d been chewed on. But it’s healthy. And doing well. Growing some new leaves already. Box was crushed and have sent an email, waiting on a response. But I would order again.

  9. Benjamin Spinelli (verified owner)

I miss all the tropical plants from Hawaii, I had to get it!

Again, one of my favorite plants when I travel to tropical locations, I had to have one ~ hopefully I can care for it correctly here in the Midwest/Missouri climates!

I love seeing the orange blooms on this plant in Hawaii and South Africa. I'm hoping this plant will bring some of those good vibes into my home!
