Strelitzia Reginae is a gorgeous evergreen perennial from the Strelitziaceae family. This plant is sometimes referred to as the “crane plant”, but it's more commonly known as a “bird of paradise”. Though it’s native to temperate parts of South America, birds of paradise can be found around the globe.
These plants are famous for their exquisite beauty. With colorful flowers that resemble the head and beak of a tropical bird, these plants consistently intrigue just about anyone who sees it.
Strelitzia Reginae is a resilient plant and an absolute breeze to care for. These plants are drought resistant and only need to be watered once every 1-2 weeks. Birds of paradise prefer slightly moist soil, but can live for extended periods of time without it.
The ASPCA considers Strelitzia Reginae toxic to pets. These plants produce hydrocyanic acid so you'll want to keep it away from any of your furry companions. That being said, animals typically are drawn to toxic plants.
If you're looking to add some tropical color to your home or office, Strelitzia Reginae is a great choice and requires minimal care.
