Strelitzia is a genus of five species of perennial plants, native to South Africa. A common name is the “bird of paradise” plant, because of the resemblance of its flowers to these birds. It is also known as the “crane flower”. It is one of the most popular horticultural perennials around the world, featuring regularly in landscape gardening. It flowers for long periods with its vivid orange and bright purple/blue inflorescences, and is a good cut flower subject. The smaller varieties make an ideal pot plant.
