Large A bird of paradise can reach a height of 5 feet. Its long, thick leaves usually grow to 18 inches long and 6 inches wide, spreading to a width about the same as the height of the plant. Although blooms can appear in the center, most blooms tend to spout along the outer edge of the plant. They need plenty of sun to bloom - indoor blooming only occurs in rare occasions and in spaces with plenty of direct sunlight.
The plant grows to ~7 ft tall (over 2m), with large, strong leaves long and broad. The leaves are evergreen and arranged in two ranks, making a fan-shaped crown. The flowers stand above the foliage at the tips of long stalks. The hard, beak-like sheath from which the flower emerges is termed the spathe. This is placed perpendicular to the stem, which gives it the appearance of a bird's head and beak; it makes a durable perch for holding the sunbirds which pollinate the flowers. The flowers, which emerge one at a time from the spathe, consist of three brilliant orange sepals and three purplish-blue or white petals. Two of the blue or white petals are joined together to form an arrow-like nectary. When the sunbirds sit to drink the nectar, the petals open to cover their feet in pollen.
