Strelitzia reginae, commonly known as the Crane Flower or Bird of Paradise, is a species of flowering plant indigenous to South Africa.

  • An evergreen perennial, it is widely cultivated for its dramatic flowers.
  • They are large, relatively easy to grow plants that lend a bold tropical flair to any indoor space.
  • With proper care, a bird of paradise can grow to over six feet tall, even indoors.
  • Its broad, arching leaves make a dramatic, graceful statement in your home.
  • It can handle light levels from direct sunlight to low indirect light.
  • It will flourish in a sunny spot.
  • Keep the soil moist, but not soggy during the spring through fall.
  • In the winter, allow two inches of soil to dry out between waterings.
  • It cannot handle ‘wet feet’, meaning its roots should not sit in wet soil.
  • It’s best to keep it on the dry side.
  • It is a hungry plant because of how quickly it grows!
  • During the spring and summer fertilize once a month with an all-purpose liquid feed.
  • No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.
