Giant Bird of Paradise sums up this immense plant - huge grey-green paddle shaped leaves to 2m long are produced on a gradually extending ringed trunk. Once the plant reaches 2m or more it can start to produce flowers - like a larger version of Strelitzia reginae but white where the other is orange. It will happily live, root bound, in the same pot for many years as long as it is given regular feeding and will tolerate the bright, dry conditions of a conservatory or greenhouse very well. Good job too - if re-potted annually Strelitzia nicholai will soon hit the roof!



Delivery had to be delayed because of frost (understandable) but after it had past the delivery was very prompt. The plant was very well packaged and came in excellent condition. My only complaint is the plant was too big for the pot and the roots had come through the bottom so much the plastic pot had to be cut off to allow for repotting (hence 4 not 5 stars). Overall though an excellent seller that I would highly recommend.
