Although the birds of paradise is a significant part of the Hawaiian culture, it is in fact native to south Africa. Scientifically known as strelitzia, and also known as the crane flower, it is a common house plant that can grow up to 10m tall. The birds of paradise is characterised by three bright orange petals and three blue petals in a single bud, shaped to mirror a tropical bird in flight.
This tropical beauty is a hazard to dogs and cats due to its toxic content but safe for humans. With a life of 7 to 14 days, they will stay beautiful when kept away from direct sunlight, with a fresh change of water and a small snip on the stem daily for a fresh surface area to better absorb water.
Single variety flowers come wrapped in brown paper with a water bag. This ensures sufficient hydration for the flowers so that they remain fresh between the time it is put together and when the recipient receives it.
Here are the number of stalks you will find in each size:
Standard — 10 stalks
Large — 18 stalks
The bird of paradise is a tall-stemmed variety, ideal for entrance tables, console tables and bar top centrepieces.
