Mandela's Gold Bird of Paradise

An Unusual Color on an Unusual Plant
Bird of Paradise is a unique flower gaining popularity in the home garden. It's fun to spot an exotic bird head rising above your mixed perennials. While everyone else is flaunting their orange birds of paradise, why not add a particularly unique color into your flock? For such an enchanting look, it's surprisingly easy to take care of—it's both heat and drought tolerant. It is native to South Africa, so it's better with mild winters. In most U.S. climates, it'll have to come indoors for winter. Or you could grow it indoors year-round, it's a fantastic houseplant. At 4-5' tall, it makes impressive structure and vertical interest that'll set a container garden apart.
