Bird of Paradise
Scientific name: Strelitzia reginae or Strelitzia nicolai
Its cousin is the banana!
The bird of paradise is known as the ultimate symbol of paradise and freedom.
It also represents immortality.
Due to its tropical nature, this flower also symbolizes freedom and joy.
Although birds of paradise are best known for their bright orange and blue colors, their flowers can also be white.
Provide part shade/medium light.
Grow bird of paradise in soil that drains well.
Root rot can occur if the soil retains too much water.
For a potted plant, use a high-quality potting mix.
Water bird of paradise regularly with 1" of water, 1-2x a week to keep the soil slightly moist.
Do not overwater!
In the fall and winter, allow the top of the soil to dry out between waterings.
If the plant is container-grown, dump out any excess water that seeps into the drainage dish.
Move a container-grown bird of paradise indoors before the first expected frost date in your area.
Ideally, move a potted bird of paradise indoors before temperatures drop below 50 or 60 degrees F.
On frosty nights, insert three or four tall stakes around an outdoor BOP plant, and drape a sheet over the top, so it touches the ground, but does not touch the plant.
Remove the sheet in the morning.
Fertilize bird of paradise 2x a month during active growth, in spring and summer.
