Strelitzia nicolai ‘Giant Bird of Paradise’
Sturdy, evergreen, upright clumping plant with large, glossy, dark green leaves. Leaves can reach 1.5 metres in length and will split as they mature. Blue and white flowers of an unusual beak-like structure appear nestled in the foliage in late spring-early summer. Fertilise with an organic all-purpose fertiliser in spring and summer. Low water requirements but occasional watering during dry spells will benefit the plant.
*Offshoot can be removed from the base of the plant at any time of the year to keep the plant to the desired size.
Position: Full Sun to part shade
