Orange Bird of Paradise
This georgeous, small Strelitzia has short, dividing, underground rhizomes
that produce a dense cluster of leathery, glaucous leaves, creating a
bushy appearance. The Orange Bird of Paradise carries a plethora of long
spikes with stunning orange and blue, birdlike flowers (hence the common
name), which are often seen as cut flowers. It does well in temperate
and subtropical climates, preferring a spot in full sun, and is fairly
drought and frost tolerant.
