Sizing guide
Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia) is a much-loved plant in Australian gardens and highly recommend at online plants. Their common name comes from their striking flowers – bright, plumed blooms perched on long stems that look like the crests of tropical birds peeking through the leaves. 

The most important thing to do for a Strelitzia is to plant it somewhere that suits its needs, and it will mostly take care of the rest. That means a sunny position, at worst part shade, with free draining soil.

They can cope with either very little water or lots – provided that the water is running through the soil away from the plant. If they are left to sit in boggy soil, the fleshy roots will slowly rot, killing your plant. Fertilize your Strelitzia in spring and autumn with a general purpose fertiliser like Debco Pro vita.

Those gorgeous flowers will appear in spring, summer and if you’re lucky winter too, so either cut them to enjoy inside in a vase or trim them off when the flower has finished helping the plant conserve energy. Leaving finished flowers on the plant will discourage it from producing more.
