The Bird of Paradise -
Strelitzia reginae

Strelitzia reginae is a species of evergreen tropical herbaceous plant that is native to South Africa. Given its own family Strelitziaceae by taxonomists, it is still closely-related to bananas (Musaceae). These regal plants (for which they are named, reginae) are thus named for the beautiful, crane-like flowers that they produce. If given full, southern exposure, proper humidity, and temperature, they may flower indoors. 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.
