Strelitzia reginae (Bird of Paradise)
A unique evergreen perennial with large paddle shaped green leaves. Bold, exotic orange flowers appear throughout the year.
Grows well in a fertile well drained soil in full sun or part shade and is drought tolerant when established. Remove old or damaged leaves to keep looking good. Frost tender. Feed annually with a long-term slow release fertilizer.
A great feature plant for creating a tropical effect in the garden. Its bold orange flowers are very striking and will attract nectar feeding birds, and can be used as well as the foliage for floral decorations. It can also be grown successfully in large containers.
