I think that the main plant in this photo is a Banana, and that the Bird of Paradise is near the bottom right? It this is correct, I think we should change this to a multi-plant image.

Jon, *Blush* the plant is actually the Giant White Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia nicolai) and can either be moved over to the correct entry or deleted since I already have photos there.

Yes, that photo was taken in San Diego. The first photo was from a botanical gardens here in Fla. Both are the Giant White Bird; I just posted the one Jon referred to in the wrong database location. Green Grin!
