Strelitzia reginae 'Mandela's Gold' (Yellow Bird-of-Paradise)

Strelitzia reginae 'Mandela's Gold' (Yellow Bird-of-Paradise)

90 (120)cm, Yellow Bird-of-Paradise makes a dense cluster of dark green and utmost showy flower stalks crowned by a canoe shaped inflorescence with dark yellow and rich blue bracts in the cultivar Mandela's Gold. It was raised at Kirstenbosch Botanic Garden in South Africa by inbreeding yellow-flowering plants over several generations. The result was a pure line of plants with yellow (instead of orange) bracts which come true from seed. It was first named 'Kirstenbosch Gold' but then later changed to 'Mandela's Gold' in honor of Nelson Mandela. This cultivar is mujch slower growing in comparison to the normal orange form. Our seeds derive from hand-pollinated plants grown on Tenerife (Canary islands, Spain). For any rich, well drained substrate in a sunny spot throughout the year.
