Bird of Paradise

Love 'em or hate 'em, most people have an opinion on them.  Some find them lovely and exotic.  Others think they're creepy. 

Personally, I think they're exotic, and pretty.  But I find them a royal pain as a part of the landscaping.  They're somewhat aggressive reproducers, and difficult to keep in check.

They do make stunning cut flowers, and last a long time in a vase.  My daughter cut these yesterday, and they'll be around for about a week.


  1. I love them... I think they are exotic too! We had a huge one in our backyard when we lived in CA.

  2. Having never seen these before I think they are simply gorgeous. However, I know how invasive some plants are so I hear you!


Play nice, please.
