Strelitzia reginae, Bird of Paradise
A very popular, evergreen perennial with large long-stalked leaves.
Strelitzia produces very unique, exotic-looking flowers that resemble a birds head.
Beautiful for cutting.
This sub-tropical plant needs to be container-grown here in northern Europe, so that it can be overwintered in a frost-free place.
RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.
Native to South Africa.
