A relative of the banana plant, the Bird of paradise is stunning with its large, glossy green leaves and blooms in the shape of cranes, which is how it gets its name. This plant is unique, majestic, and brings very tropical note into any space. It's also quite hardy and will tolerate many light conditions, but does best in bright filtered light. Bring it home and enjoy its graceful arcing stems and broad green leaves.

Care: If you're noticing brown tips on your leaves, try leaving water out overnight to allow chlorine and fluoride to evaporate before watering, or use pre-distilled water. If you notice dust accumulation, wipe down the leaves so that they stay glossy.
