If you've got the space and are looking to create an instant tropical feel in your garden, then this would have to be the plant for you.
Strelitzia nicholai is big and fast-growing - it can grow to about 6m tall and 3.5m wide. It is an impressive plant with long, broad leaves and enormous white flowers with blue bracts.
They make a very attractive container plant for large pots.
The plants we sell are well established in 200 - 250 mm pots. Most are about 1m tall and very lush. They can grow in full sun, but ours are grown in part shade.
These are too big to post, so they are for pick up only. Alternatively if you are buying several trays of plants we can get a quote for plant freight for you. As a guide, typically plant freight starts at $70 for SE Qld and $190 for NSW.
