Strelitzia

$16.50

Strelitzia reginae, the scientific name for the Bird of Paradise, is an ornamental plant that has two erect, pointed petals and five stamens.  It has one main bract, shaped like a boat, and is green with red borders. It holds many long-stemmed, orange and bright-blue flowers. The Bird of Paradise bears an unmistakable resemblance to a brightly colored bird in flight and is also often referred to as the crane flower.

Strelitzia is the second release in the new Floral Mandala Collection from Glendon Place.  I am very excited about this new collection and look forward to creating more colorful design interpretations of the world’s most beautiful flowers.
