The Orange Bird of Paradise is a stunning plant that is an (almost) identical twin to the White Bird of Paradise. The only difference is that the paddle shaped leaves are slightly narrower, and instead of white flowers, it breaks out into fantastic orange blooms. Its bold and tropical appearance make it a great statement piece for your home.

About Bird of Paradise Orange

History

The genus of plants that Bird of Paradise belongs to is called Strelitzia. Strelitzia was named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen of England and Ireland from 1761-1818. Queen Charlotte was an amateur botanist who took a great interest in and helped to develop Kew Gardens.

Cultivation

Strelitzia reginae is native to sub-tropical and coastal south Africa. Due to their stunning floral displays and architectural beauty, they are now cultivated worldwide and naturalised in North, Central, and South America, as well as parts of Portugal.

Care

The Bird of Paradise loves warmth, sunlight and humidity. They can be thirsty during the summer months, but always ensure that the top few cms of soil has dried out in between watering. Bird of paradise roots hates sitting in water so be careful to always ensure their soil isn't waterlogged. In the wild, these plants burst out into fantastic white-blue blooms. Unfortunately, it is unlikely they'll bloom in the UK. Their leaves should be wiped every few weeks to remove dust and help them absorb the sunshine.

Did you know?

Bird of Paradise plants are usually pollinated by birds, called sunbirds who seek out the nectar at the base of the flower. When they land on the bottom petal, their weight exposes the anthers (the part of a flower that contains the pollen) that brush pollen onto their feet. The pollen spreads as the birds move on to their next, nectar-filled flower.

Toxicity

If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.
