Description

ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF ALL EXOTIC FLOWERS

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.
