Also known as the Giant Bird of Paradise, Strelitzia nicolai can grow to 10 meters and produces blue and white flowers. Plants also produce offsets prolifically. Often used in those garden areas where a privacy screen is needed, they can also act as a 'wick' to draw moisture from wet areas. The plant also makes a fine ornamental pot specimen. When grown in decor pots, care should be taken not to over feed the plant due to likely rapid growth rate resulting in outgrowing the container.
