Strelitzia 'Bird of Paradise'

Strelitzia

Half-hardy Perennial

Bring a touch of the tropics to your garden with the exotic blooms of the Bird of Paradise plant. This striking plant makes a great seasonal summer addition, plunged into sunny borders or kept in a container on a sunny patio. Protected over winter plants will reach an impressive size, rivalling any plants you've seen on your sunshine holidays. As temperatures drop moving into autumn, bring the plant inside for a touch of summer all winter long. The stately blue green, deeply ribbed foliage makes an attractive foil for their magnificent flowers which resemble birds with bright plumage. The striking blooms will make for an impressive talking point on the patio! Height: 210cm (83"). Spread 100cm (36")
