Strelitzia reginae 'Orange Bird of Paradise'

The bird of paradise (Strelitzia spp.) is one of the best-known tropical flowers. It is named for closely resembling the tropical bird of the same name. It is easier to grow than many tropical plants and makes for a vigorous, rapidly growing indoor plant. It can be moved outside in the summer and thrives for half the year.

Growing Orange Bird of Paradise

  • Plant in a location with full sun to partial shade, ensuring it receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily for optimal growth and flowering.
  • Provide well-draining soil, such as sandy or loamy soil, to prevent water-logging and root rot.
  • Water regularly during the plant's establishment period, then adjust to a moderate watering schedule, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
  • Fertilize with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer monthly during the growing season to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering.
  • Orange Bird of Paradise is hardy in USDA zones 9-11 and can tolerate some drought once established. It is a low-maintenance plant that adds tropical flair to gardens and landscapes.
