Strelitzia juncea is a slow grower in comparison to the other Bird of Paradise varieties and is drought hardy once established.  

It grows to approximate 1-2m in height and width, and although it will take 3-4 years to flower, the flower lasts very long. It makes a great accent plant in modern garden landscapes, xeriscapes as well as tropical landscapes.

This plant not only tolerates drought well, but is also cold hardy. Although, it should not be exposed to frost.  

Strelitzia juncea is best grown in full sun for best flowering performance, but could be grown in part shade. Part shade will encourage nicer, greener foliage.  

This Strelitzia needs to be grown in well draining soil, it cannot sit in water for long periods of time. It can handle high rainfall or regular watering, but water will need to be able to drain away from the roots easily.

Syn: Leafless Bird of Paradise, Narrow Leaf Bird of Paradise, Needle Leaved Bird of Paradise
