A large Bird of Paradise plant, currently around a 80-100cms, ready to grow away and produce the gorgeous, magnificent blooms for which it is famed.
Blooms cost around £6 each themselves at a florist, so why not grow your own, give the garden an exotic touch in summer and create a real talking point?
They're great for the conservatory too, producing spectacular, bright orange and midnight-blue flowers resembling the face of a colourful crane surrounded by paddle-shaped, emerald-green leaves.
This beautiful Bird of Paradise makes an exotic house-plant for a bright, well-lit room.
During the summer months plunge container-grown specimens in the middle of a sunny border to create an instant tropical effect, or display on the patio.
This exotic plant from Africa is easy to grow and can stand both full sun and shade, keep the soil moist at all times and feed once a month.
Great outdoors from May to October, the brightly coloured flowers will last for three months, in their natural surroundings these are pollinated by honey-sucking birds.
Perfect for the patio, conservatory or plunging into a tropical themed garden border on well drained retentive soil.
Although a tender plant, we know of customers in the South West successfully growing this plant outside all year round with limited protection.
Supplied in approx 5 litre containers at around 80-100cms tall.
