Orange Bird Of Paradise

Brilliant Blooms Reminiscent of a Bird's Head
This is a popular houseplant and a real conversation piece! Bird of Paradise has exotic flowers with three brilliant orange sepals and three bright blue petals. The petals and sepals emerge from a hard beak-like sheath at a right angle to the stem, giving the appearance of a bird's head. Large, up to 4' tall, grey-green banana-like leaves add a tropical feel and are attractive throughout the year. Orange Bird of Paradise can be grown outdoors in warmer climates. In northern zones, this plant is often grown as a patio plant during the summer months and brought indoors during cooler weather.
