Description Fine Print
 
The striking and rare rush-leaved bird-of-paradise, Strelitzia juncea, is the perfect subtropical plant for succulent lovers. It has the classic orange and blue bird-like flowers but the leaves are cylindrical spears with no paddle-like blade. S. juncea is from South Africa. Grow it in a pot outdoors in full sun in the summer with good moisture and fertilizer. Bring it indoors in fall to spend the winter as a houseplant. It will bloom indoors from January to March. Note that young plants have a small leaf blade but, once mature, the leaves will be spear-like.
