Strelitzia Nicolai 'White Bird of Paradise'Strelitzia nicolai
Common Name: Wild Banana
USDA Hardiness Zones: 9B-11 (Outdoors)
Nothing says tropical like White Bird of Paradise, with its enormous leaves, upright stems and exotic flowers. The unique white bird shaped flower grows in a clumping form and needs a large area in which to spread out and unfurl its big leaves. The plant blossoms on and off during warm weather, with flowers that bear an astonishing resemblance to a bird's head. The mistake most people make with a white bird - and many other South Florida landscape plants - is not planning ahead for growth. This house plant will mature into a 5-6 ft plant. However, some outdoor White Bird of Paradise plants are known to be over 20 feet tall by at least 6 feet or more wide, and it can tower over a small one-story house.
Please note: Toxic to humans, cats and dogs if ingested.
