The white bird of paradise plant is often mistaken for a banana tree.  It is immense and the flowers so high up that they may be overlooked.

For Cee’s Flower of the Day.

    I’ve only seen one white bird of paradise — in the San Diego Zoo, which has a wonderful collection of plant life as well as the animals! It’s a rare flower, and oh, so beautiful!

        I’ll save one of my passes for you! They are working on some major upgrades, and have just opened several that I’ve not yet seen!

    We have one of the giant strelizias in the back garden and goodness’ knows how it got there as we most certainly didn’t plant it! A seed via a bird’s bottom several years ago, I guess!
    It must be around 7 or 8 metres tall by now.

    This is a beautiful photo.
