Strelitzia are native to Southern African coastal forests, where they can grow up to 20 feet tall! As an indoor plant, they are more likely to grow to between 2 and 3 metres, with long sculptural stems and dark paddle-shaped leaves, making them a real statement plant for any home. This specific variety, Strelitzia Nicolai, is also known as a White Bird of Paradise or a Crane Plant due to its beautiful white flowers in the shape of flying birds.

Quick Care Guide

Light requirements: Strelitzia needs bright light, ideally with several hours of direct light per day. They will thrive in conservatories, or by a south-facing window.
