Strelitzia reginae (Bird of Paradise)

Slow growing exotic that does well in a pot indoors. Just as well as it’s the only place it’ll survive in Britain. Banana leaves and insane flower spikes. This is not hardy and cannot be planted or kept outside in this country, sorry. In the growing season water freely and feed once a month with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Top dress every year and ideally repot every second year. Water it sparingly in the winter months and make sure it is ventilated. No need to prune just sit back and enjoy those flowers….

Hardy in Atlantic Seaboard gardens, The Channel Islands, gardens in Central London (and other large cities) and conservatories.

This is only meant as a guide; there are some plants with red labels that would only survive in extremely favoured spots such as The Isles of Scilly or coastal south-west Ireland.

We're always on hand to give advice about plants and their frost hardiness.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
