The Giant Bird of Paradise is a large, lush evergreen with long broad leaves, resembling palm fronds or banana leaves. It has striking white, purple, and blue flowers that appear during spring, summer, and autumn, providing stunning contrast against the bluish-green foliage. This species adds a definite tropical feel to any landscape. It is an ideal feature plant in a garden bed or large containers and an amazing indoor plant. As an indoor plant, this species is one of the best. Its leaves are tough and durable, coping well with heating, air-conditioning, and being brushed past all the time. They can also handle going a long time between waterings. Like most indoor plants, Giant Bird of Paradise does best when in a bright spot inside the house. Feed with a slow-release fertiliser, and give regular foliar feeds to encourage new leaf growth.
