(white bird of paradise)
Family Strelitziaceae
Originating from S Natal, NE Cape

Very fast growing Strelitzia that can reach giant proportions even in a UK garden provided it is dug up and moved to more congenial surroundings during the winter months. Very long leaf blades on 2m leaf stalks. Produces long lasting white and blue Bird of Paradise flowers during spring. Height to 10m although this is unlikely in UK (thankfully!).
Top dress annually and repot every second year. Water sparingly in winter and ventilate when temperatures exceed 20°C. Can be grown outdoors in a frost-free, moist but well-drained, fertile soil with protection from strong winds.
