Strelitzia occurs naturally only in South Africa along the eastern coast from Humansdorp to northern KwaZulu-Natal in coastal bush and thicket. It grows along river banks in full sun, however sometimes it occurs and flowers on margins of forest in shade. Strelitzia has become one of the most popular horticultural perennials around the world. It flowers for long periods with its vivid orange and bright purple/blue inflorences and is an awesome display in either vases or pots.
