The Q&A Archives: Bird of Paradise

Question: What is the best way to trim Bird of Paradise, we have them growing in our pool area, and they are pushing against the roof of the screen. If I cut down the trunk, will it grow back?

Answer: Daw,

There are several plants that go by the name bird of paradise. I suspect you are referring to one of the caesalpinias. You can cut those back and they will resprout from the trunk in time.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
