Appearance: Strelitzia reginae is a clump-forming perennial plant with large, paddle-shaped leaves. The leaves are glossy, deep green, and arranged in a fan-like manner, growing from a central stem.

Flowers: The most distinctive feature of Bird of Paradise is its flowers. The inflorescence consists of several bright orange and blue petals arranged in a way that resembles a bird’s head with a beak and feathers. The flowers emerge from thick, erect stalks known as scapes. They are quite striking and add a tropical flair to any landscape.

Growing Conditions: Strelitzia reginae thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. It is relatively drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering is essential to encourage healthy growth and flowering.

Propagation: Bird of Paradise can be propagated through division or by seeds. Division is often the preferred method as it ensures that the new plant maintains the characteristics of the parent plant.
