6" Strelitzia


We have run out of stock for this item.

Strelitzia, or Giant Bird of Paradise, is a strong statement plant for a large spot. Actually like a giant Banana tree, it sprouts enormous green leaves on long stems that sway and bend down, and will develop the leaf splits of a wind-worried Banana tree with the splits letting breezes pass through without downing the plant.  Of course, the indoor plant won't get quite that big, but is still a substantial plant. Nice big, shiny, green leaves coming from a sturdy center clump and reaching 6' tall and more, you need a good spot for it. Mature plants will sprout astounding flowers, like a huge Bird of Paradise bloom but in white and blue instead of orange. Super easy care and rarely needs watering.
