Question: I purchased a bird of paradise plant do they like sun or shaded areas@ how big do they get in size

Answer: Bird-of-paradise grows in most soils, but does best in fertile, organic soils with good drainage. It is considered to be a slow growing plant. For good flower production, place plants in sunny or partially shaded locations. Plants grown in partial shade will be taller and have somewhat larger flowers. In full sun, plants are smaller and flowers are on shorter stems. The plant forms a 3- to 5-foot-tall clump. Enjoy!
