Bird of paradise
Add tropical flair to your garden or home with stunning bird of paradise flowers. Named for their resemblance to a flamboyant tropical bird, the long-lasting blooms appear in shades of orange and white. Outdoors, they are a favorite in tropical landscapes because the plants are practically carefree -- just give them a sunny spot with well-drained soil and you'll be rewarded with the exotic blooms.
Indoors, they need a bright spot in order to produce flowers. Many gardeners take their bird of paradise outside for the summer so the plants can soak up the sun. Repot or divide the plants every two to three years if you grow them in a container to prevent them from becoming root-bound.
