It looks like a really big bloom. We have two but Franks afraid to give them to much sun. Is yours in full sun or part sun? I love em I guess I’ll just buy one and show him they like alittle more sun than what their getting 🤗😊💕

Yes these complimentary colors really pop with beauty. Birds! 😂 I should have tagged them for 'wildlife', Leslie! When I was a kid, my mother would cut the finished stalks off and we would play 'golf' with the 'clubs'. 😂❤ @veepaisal @ShelleySnyder @lesliecole49 @pelly #memories

Their so nice and healthy I have to and neither one of mine bloomed this year. I’m here in San Antonio but it’s zone 10 hoe long were urs in the sun. We had such a hot summer but I’m guessing it was lack of sun. Do urs bloom every year??

@terrimclaughlin this plant was planted here about 20 years ago. After it was planted, neighbor's trees grew and it was in the shade for 90% of the time. It grew very slowly and did not bloom until the tree that covered it fell over about two years ago now. Now it blooms multiple times every year. Now it gets almost full sun.

This Bird of Paradise plant is at least 15 years old. This is its third blooming. My neighbor's giant ficus tree fell three years ago. This is the only one who was glad.
