Giant Bird of Paradise - Peltzer Palm Nursery - Santa Ana California

Giant Bird of Paradise - Strelitzia Nicolai

This tropical plant has erect, woody palm like stems reaching heights as high as 20' and can spread as far as 12'. 

The Giant Bird of Paradise has exotic grey-green leaves spanning as wide as 6' that are arranged like a fan at the top of the stems. 

The inflorescence is composed of a dark blue bract, white sepals and a bluish-purple “tongue”. The entire flower can be as large as 7" high by 18" long and is typically held just above the point where the leaf fan emerges from the stem. Flowers are followed by triangular seed capsules.

Bird of Paradise are often used to bring color and flavor to Southern California landscapes.    

TIP:   Remember to give this plant plenty of room to grow.  Due to the expansion of its roots, we highly recommend root barriers.  Do not plant too close to swimming pools or concrete.
