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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- bird of paradise
It is a very healthy, robust looking plant. I know they have to be mature to bloom so that is a couple years down the road. It has been in the ground a week and looks great. Seems like i see some new growth coming up. So I will give a 4 for now. And, after my first bloom, I will change it to a 5.
Our Bird arrived, it has been planted and seems healthy and happy.
Excellent plant health and size
received plant without any problems, quickly and well packed, no damage. Bird of Paradise plants are not cheap but beautiful and worth the wait until they bloom in about 5 years once somewhat mature.
Bird of Paradise does not bloom until they are mature and have formed a large clump. Could take between 5-8 years for them to mature. I am not sure what age these plants are offered on this website, but the images do say the photos are of mature plants. You may have to wait a few years after ordering to see blooms.
