Biennials live for 2 years, whereas perennials live for longer. As a general rule, biennial and perennial seeds should be sown in spring, but some can be sown in autumn as well. Many varieties will self-seed after flowering, giving you even more plants!
Strelitzia reginae 'Mandela's Gold'
Bird of Paradise, Strelitzia reginae 'Kirstenbosch Gold'The rarely-offered, golden-yellow bird of paradise! After 20 years of hand pollination and selection by the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, a small quantity of seed became available in 1994. Since then T&M has tried to introduce this variety into its catalogue. Patience usually pays off and finally we can offer more gardeners the chance of growing and seeing these flamboyant golden-yellow and purple blooms. Plants can take many years to flower from seed. Height: 1.2-1.8m (4-6ft). More info
