Strelitzia reginae, the 'Bird of Paradise' plant, was introduced to this country from it's native South Africa. It has become popular, partly because it's an easy plant to care for but mainly because when it flowers, it is quite stunning. They make wonderful cut flowers for a large vase. The flowers resemble the crest of an exotic bird in the most beautiful orange and blue colours. Even when not in flower Strelitzia is still impressive, with it's evergreen blue-grey paddle like leaves. it makes a great house plant and can certainly live outside in summer if you wish. Keep on the dry side indoors during the winter.
