  • Position: full light (with shade from hot sun)
  • Soil: loam-based potting compost (John Innes No3)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February to May
  • Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection)

    These beautiful indoor plants are not currently in bloom, but given time they will produce spectacular, bright orange and midnight-blue flowers that look a little like the head of a colourful crane. These exotic-looking flowers are surrounded by paddle-shaped, emerald-green leaves, which shred with age, but remain a feature throughout the year. This beautiful bird of paradise makes an interesting house plant for a bright, well-lit room and in summer, can be plunged (pot and all) in the middle of a sunny border to create an instant tropical effect.

  • Garden care: During the growing season water regularly and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Water sparingly in winter and top-dress each spring. As the old leaves become shredded, trim them off. The plants should be potted into a larger pot in autumn and may be left outside from May to September (provided there is no risk of frost). They need winter protection and can be kept in a greenhouse or conservatory from October through to April.
