Strelitzia nicolaii ‘Giant Bird of Paradise’

Giant Bird of Paradise is used less for its flowers than its large, graceful, banana-like leaves. If you want to create a tropical feel in a cooler climate, Giant Bird of Paradise is a great choice. Over time it forms clumps which are a lovely feature in a garden, and will grow as big as a tree.

Native to South Africa, Giant Bird of Paradise is hardy and does well in most Aussie climates. Avoid planting it close to concrete or fences that the roots cannot go under, as they will go through instead!
