Famous for unique, tropical flowers

The Bird Of Paradise, or ‘Crane Flower’ plant is known for its stunning flowers that resemble the shape of a tropical bird. The flowers sit among thick green leaves and look as if cranes are perched in the foliage.

The flowers sit on top of green canes with horizontal blue-grey bracts that sit horizontally. At the end of the bracts orange petals shoot straight up, looking like a bird’s feathery crown.

Once planted, they will morph your landscape into a tropical paradise filled with beauty and a sweet floral fragrance. Spectators will have to do a double take, because at first they’ll mistake the vibrant blooms for exotic wildlife, and then they will be drawn into the bright, beautiful colors.

You don’t have to live in a tropical area for Bird Of Paradise plants to thrive because they will grow in containers and inside without any fuss. Place your Bird Of Paradise inside near a sunny window when it starts to get cold, and then place it back outside when temperatures start to warm up again.

Bird Of Paradise plants have canes and large, thick leaves that are similar to banana leaves. They provide a lush background for the vibrant tropical flowers to pop against.

The Bird Of Paradise is often referred to as the ‘beginners tropical’ because it’s an incredibly low maintenance plant that’s easy to grow indoors and out. With a little water your Bird Of Paradise will thrive.

bird of paradise - orange
I hope the plant does eventually bloom and if it does I would have to change the rating to a 5-star rating. I am really trying to do what I can to make it feel happy so it will grow. The plant does look healthy and I am looking forward to the blooms. What can I write? Thanks.

Beautiful plant
Big green leaves very healthy. Hasn’t bloomed yet, but can’t wait to see the blooms. It’s in a large planter right now but will transplant when I develop the garden area.

Average satisfaction
Buy the plant insurance. I bought two Birds of Paradise. There are three smaller plants in each pot.
One pot is doing great, the other, two of the three plants have died. Disappointed in one, satisfied with the other, hence the average rating.

My bird of paradise arrived today in pretty good shape. I trimmed off a few dead leaves but the plant looks very healthy. It already adds so much to my garden and can’t wait to see it grow.

looks good but.....
it arrived in great shape. it's now on our back patio and gets sun for about 6 to 8 hrs. the only problem is that there are no flowers as yet. don't know when they will bloom either. the leaves and stems are very stiff and healthy. it keeps getting new shoots and seems to like the larger pot that i transplanted to. i hope it blooms before i have to take it inside.

Growing in half barrel in Everett,Wa. Slow to start after travel but strong. Dirt spilled in container. Hardy to weather especially excessive rainfall we have had. Good drainage helps. No blooms yet but not expecting any yet. Plant is firm and strong to touch and see but slower starting.

healthy plant!
The plant I received was very healthy, excellent packaging and I was surprised how fast I received it.

I planted it at least 2 weeks ago and growth is apparently vibrant.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bird Of Paradise - Orange



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bird Of Paradise - Orange.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Bird Of Paradise - Orange gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Bird Of Paradise - Orange again after the transplant is complete.

How big is the plant?
Jo S on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends on plant location.....in California on a sunny location may grow to 5 plus feet, in semi shade much smaller. To bloom they need full sunshine tho....
