This exotic flower was one of the first things I noticed when I first moved to California. I’d never seen one before, but its vibrant colors and attractive shape rapidly caught my attention. There is a sidewalk close to where I live full of these magnificent flowering plants, so they are one of the first things I see every morning on my commute to work. I just can’t help but smile every time I look at them. The Bird of Paradise flower is the perfect ornamental piece for any street, they make you feel like you are surrounded by beautiful tropical birds all the time.
I’m in love with the combination of colors of the petals (orange, purple and magenta) and the leathery green leaves. I think this is my favorite plant in the world; I can’t wait to cover the garden of my future dream house with those.
Does the Bird of Paradise flower grow where you live?
