Description of the plant
With Strelitzias, you are entering paradise!
You will discover the most fascinating of exotic flowers: nicknamed the "bird of paradise", it will evoke a bird's head or a parrot's beak, depending on the day, you be the judge! It will also seduce you with its poetic languor with its long leaves that will make you see life in a bluish green, sparingly hemmed in with purple, of the most beautiful effect.
The "juncea", the one with the rush leaves, is the rarest and the most rustic. Its cylindrical, curled leaves form tufts reminiscent of rushes, a curiosity! Its flowers are orange and blue.
Discover our two other varieties: the best known, the "reginae", will enchant you with its orange and blue flowers and its bushy habit, while the "nicolai" will transport you in purplish black and white in a tree-like habit, spreading its leaves in a fan shape.
So your main concern will quickly become: which one to choose?
