Bird of paradise takes wing …

bird of paradiseEnjoying the surprises on our back patio this year. We acquired a strelitzia for the back patio a year ago and barely kept it alive over the baking hot summer. In April we were rewarded with a bird of paradise bloom. Then another. Then another! Here it makes a bright contrast against the scarlet “knockout rose” bushes in the background.

Don’t ask me the secret for making it bloom. I’d tell you if I knew!

Hmmm. Just learned there are white varieties. Never seen one of those.
