Orange Bird Of Paradise

Description
Dare to be different. Savvy gardeners are trending toward adding tropical drama to annual patio pots, and this plant will put the "thrill" in your container "thrillers." The textural contrast of the large (up to 4' tall) gray-green, banana-like leaves add a tropical feel and are attractive all season long. The exotic flowers with three brilliant orange sepals and three bright blue petals emerge from a hard beaklike sheath at a right angle to the stem, giving the appearance of a bird's head. It reliably reblooms and although the blooms are sporadic, they last for weeks. Bird of Paradise can be grown outdoors in warmer climates. In Northern areas, this plant is often grown as a patio plant during the summer months and brought indoors during cooler weather. Strelitzia reginae
