Bird of Paradise is a popular, virtually problem-free perennial for container or landscape growing. The flowers bloom over an extended period and are long-lasting. The Bird of Paradise is a member of the banana family (Musaceae) and comes from South Africa.

Bird of Paradise culture is similar to that of Traveler's Trees. For the first year or so, grow your Bird of Paradise in a pot away from full sun. After it grows larger, plant it in its final position in full sun, part sun, or light shade. Protect it from freezing and frost.

• Average mature height: 4-6 feet
• Fertilizer: Frequent fertilization during the growing season
• Light: Full to part sun
• Pest control: Watch for scale and mealy bugs
• Soil: Can adapt to any well-drained soil but prefers moist, loamy soil. Birds of Paradise are drought-tolerant once they are established.
• Zones: Perennial zone 9

A baby plant, that is 3-8 inches tall, will arrive at your home in a 3-inch-deep pot. Then, raise your new baby to maturity under your caring, green thumb.
