Strelitzia

Strelitzia - Flowers.NL®

Exotic flower with royal roots

‘Bird of paradise flower' is how the Strelitzia is also called. That is not surprising, because in the warm areas where it grows, many birds use the bract as a seat, so that the flower opens nicely. This flower does especially well in eye-catching bouquets, but also likes to shine solo or with three or four people in your home in a vase.
