Gainesville Landscape Plant of the Month: Bird of Paradise

The Bird of Paradise is highly valued for its large, exotic, colorful blooms in a bold blend of orange, blue, and white (Go Gators!) It adds amazing color and lends a tropical look to any landscape.  Crowns of long stalks with large grey-green leaves provide year-round interest. Very useful as a specimen planting, especially on a patio or near a pool. Evergreen.
