Plant Bio

Strelitzia reginae, closely related to the bananas (Musaceae), is a species of evergreen tropical herbaceous plant that is native to South Africa. These regal plants are thus named for the beautiful, cranelike flowers that they produce. If given full, southern exposure, proper humidity, and temperature, they may flower indoors. You might notice split leaves/lobing in the plant. This is natural and helps the plant to reduce wind drag in the wild. This plant’s scientific name commemorates Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen consort and wife of King George III. Queen Charlotte was a patron of the arts and an amateur botanist, and helped to greatly expand Kew Gardens.
