Fiery orange, yellow, deep cobalt blue along with reds and near purples adorn the large showy flowers and bracts which are produced mainly during spring and fall as well as in winter in areas with mild tropical climates or where grown indoors. In almost all regards the Narrow-Leaved Bird of Paradise resembles its more common cousin the Orange Bird of Paradise, although this one is more resistant to drought and has reduced its leaf blades to the point where, once the plant is mature, only the narrow, rush-like, blue-green petioles remain with which to endure the desert conditions from which it arises. It is considered to be more drought resistant and prefers well-draining soils. Makes for an unusual container specimen or use it similarly to the Orange Bird of Paradise as an informal hedge, shrub, or specimen plant. Item# 11139
