A truly tropical plant that we really love, it gives the rainforest feel in any home. A bold and elegant, tall houseplant originally native to South Africa. It’s also ingenious because it has developed to allow its leaves to split to let light through to the lower part of the plant, an adaptation for its native habitat in the jungle.
Strelitzia Nicolai shouts ‘tropical’ to anyone looking at it with its dark green, graceful foliage reaching up towards the light. Although it’s a tall houseplant it doesn’t take up a lot of space with its slim form.
Strelizia Reginae would make a fabulous houseplant gift for that extra special person who likes the flavour of the tropics. Imagine the pleasure when that plant gift delivery arrives at the door!
This Strelitzia plant is not hard to manage and will bring so much pleasure!
