Strelitzia reginae, common name: Orange Bird of Paradise, Orange Bird3 Gallon. A wonderful, tropical looking plant, bringing both color and texture to any garden. Orange Bird’s feature diminutive banana like leaves, vibrant orange flowers(in the shape of a colorful bird, hence the name), and produce multiple slender trunks, creating an impressive tropical appearance. Also noteworthy, Bird’s make excellent indoor plants, growing quite well in containers for many years. Expect this plant to grow quickly, especially in the warmer months, rapidly pushing new leaves, and growing numerous trunks. Mature Bird’s can reach heights of 4-6 feet, can easily be trimmed to accomodate most any space, and are cold hardy to 25 degrees farenheit. These appreciate ample water, respond well to fertilizing, and are not finicky about soils. Plant in shade or full sun. Extremely attractive near a water feature, patio, or veranda. These have heavy root systems. Once plants arrive, they will benefit from being kept in a 5-15 gallon container, slightly moist, warm, and in a fast draining soil, such as Supersoil, or a quality Cactus-Mix(available at any Home Improvement or local Nursery Supply Center), or in the ground. Smaller plants typically favor shade, filtered sun, or partial sun until establishedapprox. 2′-3′ tall or larger, when they can handle more/full sun. These plants should be planted at a soil height slightly above where the roots graduate from the base. Whether you are a’green thumb’ or a beginner, these are easy plants to grow, and will beautify your landscape. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
