Bird of Paradise (White)

Bird of Paradise (White)


Native to subtropical South Africa, the White Bird of Paradise graces our spaces with glossy, long, broad leaves towering to great heights, playfully hanging like birds in flight. A royal plant, if there ever was one, it received its scientific name, Strelitzia Nicolai, from Her Highness Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz of England - lover of botany and the arts.

Water on a regular basis with enough time for the plant to dry out a bit between waterings. Avoid placing a bird of paradise in soil that doesn't drain well.

Keep mulch away from the base of the plant to keep it from staying too wet.

Trimming off old leaves and stems occasionally is pretty much all that's necessary for a white bird of paradise. However, you can thin the plant out or cut back for size by cutting off the largest stalks at ground level. Pups sprouting from around the plant's base can also be removed.

Fertilize 3 times a year - in spring, summer, and autumn - with a fine quality granular fertilizer.
