I am Giant White Bird of Paradise. My family originated from South Africa

Botanic Name: Strelitzia nicolai

Upright – Creates Tropical Feel

I am a tall evergreen palm like plant with large broad banana-like leaves. I am a great way to introduce a tropical feel to the garden

I produce large bird shaped white and blue flowers during spring and early summer.

My upright habit to two stories and large foliage makes me a good tall screening option.

I will also perform well as a potted plant in a well-lit indoor location. The size of the pot I am grown in will restrict how big I grow.

A wonderful edition in foliage for tropical gardens. Eye catching I make a great feature plant.

I do best in rich slightly acidic soils kept moist but with reasonable drainage.
