Bird of Paradise
I'm Bird of Paradise! I'm exactly what I sound like: exotic, lush, and beautiful. I'm a little shy and I take awhile to bloom, but once I do, you're going to be amazed with what you see. My favorite part about myself are my beautiful flowers, I'm even named after them! They bloom in a beautiful shade of blue and orange and when you turn the flower to the side, you will see a bird! My green leaves are great for cleaning & purifying the air in your home.
Difficulty: easy, low maintenance
Light Needed: high, medium to full sun
Water: moderate, once a week when the soil is dry
The large green leaves of the Bird of Paradise make it one of the most recognizable plants in the world! This plant has a very bold and hardy structure with long, stiff leaves growing from the base. Flowers will emerge one at a time consisting of 3 blue leaves and 3 orange leaves. Look at the flower at the right angle and you'll see the shape of a bird's head! Our Bird of Paradise are grown outside and may have slight imperfections!
