Bird of paradise, Ave del paraiso

Strelitzia reginae

Description:

Herbaceous plant, in the shape of a bush and leaves with long petioles, with an average height of 1.5 m and a diameter of 1.8 m. The leaves are alternate, pinnated and distal. The flowers are hermaphroditic, asymmetrical, in cincture-like groups protected primarily by large bracts and often long-stalked. The perianth is made up of 6 tepals distributed in two groups, three free and three soldiers, one of them arrow-shaped. The fruit is a valvicidal capsule.

Habitat:

Public garden. It prefers warm and subtropical climates, although in areas with a Mediterranean environment when winter temperatures are not very cold it does well. It is very wind resistant. It is not very demanding in terms of floors.
