Product Information

Strelitzia reginae or Bird of Paradise produces spectacular, long-lasting and unique vivid orange and blue flowers, which look much like a tropical bird.

They make a stunning feature houseplant or conservatory specimen, with their tall blooms rising on vertical stems up above their glaucous leaves to 1.8m (6) tall - a florist's dream as they are incredibly long lasting!

In addition to their much-prized blooms, Strelizia grow large, paddle-shaped leaves which make an exotic, year-round architectural display even when the plants are not in flower.

A striking addition to your conservatory, and suitable as a patio plant through the summer, the bird of paradise is indeed a stunning plant - you can even plunge them pot and all, into your tropical border throughout the summer for an instant, tropical effect.

Supplied as an established young plant in a 14cm pot.

Top Tips

For best results, grow the plant in a container that can be moved outside in warm summer months and then brought back inside for winter.

Care Information

  • Strelizia needs lots of bright light with some direct sun, regular watering and warmth. Feed early in spring before new growth begins and then fertilize every week or so during the growing season.
  • Plants are not hardy so will need bringing into the hosue or conservatory over winter.
  • Replacing the top 5cm (2ins) of potting soil once a year and then re-pot about every second year or so, taking care not to damage the roots.
  • Water regular during spring and summer to maintain constant moisture, without saturating the potting media - gradually reducing the amount during the autumn. From the end of November allow the soil to dry between watering.
  • No pruning is needed, although old untidy leaves can be removed in the spring.
