PICK UP OR PLANT FREIGHT ONLY. NOT SUITABLE TO POST.
These beautiful Bird of Paradise plants (Strelitzia reginae) are several years old and are large enough to flower. They will have an instant eye-catching impact on your garden or landscaping project with their upright leaves and bright orange and purple flowers.
They do require full sun to flower at their best, although are fine if they have shade for part of the day. Likewise, they flower best when given adequate water and nutrition, but once established they will be fine in situations where they are subjected to periods of drought.
Whilst we can freight these mature plants, it is expensive so you may prefer to pick them up in their pots (or arrange for a freight company to) as they are large, heavy plants. Alternatively, you may want to consider buying the younger plants that we have listed that can be posted. As a guide, the minimum plant freight charge would be $60 for SE Qld (6 trays), significantly more for locations outside of Queensland.
They are currently in 200mm pots or greater.
