Its grand size gives it the name 'Giant White Bird Of Paradise', as it can grow to great heights (up to 16 feet!) , but the grace and understated grandeur of its sinuous shape is what makes it such a compelling house plant (it can have a summer holiday outdoors but won't survive our worst winters).
The leaves alone are large and exotic looking, but when in flower, sadly seldom seen outside of the wild, it opens wide like a great white Crane.
Also known commonly as the Wild Banana, as it is a species of banana-like plants, of which there is the orange flowering variety Reginae which we also stock for its silvery more upright leaves. Either give stature, shape and form to any room.
In terms of Strelitzia care, they are drought tolerant, coming from South Africa, but will also appreciate a good drink in the growing months. Just make sure they drain well and don't sit in water.
