Bird of Paradise "Strelitzia Reginae" 5 Seeds
Bird of Paradise "Strelitzia Reginae"
5 Seeds Minimum
This variety will grow 1.5m high and 1.5m wide. It has orange flowers with blue tongue on long stems. Excellent used as a feature plant. Excellent for cut flowers.
The leaves are evergreen and arranged in two ranks, making a fan-shaped crown. The flowers stand above the foliage at the tips of long stalks. The hard, beak-like sheath from which the flower emerges is termed the spathe. This is placed perpendicular to the stem, which gives it the appearance of a bird's head and beak; it makes a durable perch for holding the sunbirds which pollinate the flowers.
The flowers, which emerge one at a time from the spathe, consist of three brilliant orange sepals and three purplish-blue or white petals. Two of the blue or white petals are joined together to form an arrow-like nectary.
When the sunbirds sit to drink the nectar, the petals open to cover their feet in pollen.
