More about Orange Bird of Paradise...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Native to South Africa, the Bird of Paradise, Strelitzia reginae, is a tropical evergreen famous for its exotic spiky flowers that resemble a crane's beak and head plumage. The plant grows 3 to 5 feet tall with an equal spread in dense clumps of attractive waxy banana-like leaves that makes it a lovely ornamental plant. The orange flowers offer blue accents and bloom periodically during the year. The flowers make a long-lasting, striking addition to floral arrangements, lasting up to 14 days after cutting.  Ideal indoors or as an accent in warm climates. 

Uses

Where hardy outdoors, Orange Bird of Paradise is useful as an accent or specimen shrub beds or borders, or in containers. Where not winter hardy, it can be used outdoors as an annual in beds or as a container plant that can be overwintered indoors or year round when low temperatures drop below 55 degrees.
