Answer: Bird of Paradise is Strelitzia reginae. Plants grow to 5' high and produce 4"-6" wide, 1 1/2' long leaves. The flowers are dramatic, bright, and look like a bird's head with a colorful beak. The plants are not generally grown from seed but are propagated by division. A local nursery, especially one specializing in tropical plants, can get one for you.
