I love this flower, the Bird of Paradise. It sounds so special and it looks magnificent!

In actual fact, we have rice which is named after this flower, Bird of Paradise.

    Bird of Paradies...Strelitzia (pronounced /strɛˈlɪtsi.ə/)[1] is a genus of five species of perennial plants, native to South Africa. The genus is named after the duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Germany birthplace of Queen Charlotte of the United Kingdom. A common name of the genus is bird of paradise flower, because of a supposed resemblance of its flowers to the bird of paradise. In South Africa it is commonly known as a crane flower.

    Hope you don't mind that I post more info about this beautiful plant.
