Bird of Paradise Flower

It has taken five months for this bud to develop and open in my unheated conservatory - the long wait is over! You can read more about the way the flower works here.


  1. Well that was worth waiting for, it is a stunningly beautiful lower. Very interesting to read about how it works too. I do learn such a lot from you.

  2. The fourth flower in this inflorescence is rising up from its spathe today ........ one more to go, I think!
