Strelitzia juncea

Common name: Leafless Orange Bird of Paradise.

Height at maturity: 1.5 metres

We grow this plant in 250 mm pots.

Juncea begins as a standard looking Strelitzia when very small, after several months the leaves grow smaller at the top of the stem and will disappear into a rush or reed stage. Juncea are drought resistant and slow growing. They need well drained soil, but will tolerate high rainfall but they need full sun for maximum flowering. Will tolerate light frosts.
