Native to South Africa, the Strelitzia reginae commonly known as the Bird of Paradise is hardy, easy to grow and architecturally dramatic with some of the most stunning and bizarre flowers you will ever see. Instantly recognisable bird's head–like flowers are carried on long, leafless stems. The plumes are vibrant orange and electric blue–violet. Appear in April to November, but can spot-flower randomly.
The bird of paradise represents faithfulness, love, and thoughtfulness.
