Strelitizia (bird of Paradise plant)

This plant is a must for any garden on the Costa Blanca and will be ideal in any Moraira or Javea garden. It has very distinctive spiky yellow and orange flowers which give the appearance of bird crests, they are very unusual and if cut last a long time in water.
They are excellent grown in pots or in the garden and the foliage is evergreen and has large spear like leaves in a grey-green.

The plant is a member of the banana family so will only tolerate a light frost and temperatures below -2 degrees Centograde coluld damage the flowers and leaves. They need rich soil and frequent feeding. The plant flowers during spring and autumn and winter.

They are readily available in garden centres throughout the Costa Blanca. Many Moraira villas and Javea properties enjoy this plant.
