Flanking either side of the entrance to the office building where Queenie disguises her royal visage and brings home the bacon there are two sizeable Bird of Paradise plants. They are interesting plants… Ultra modern… Minimalist in their floral generosity. Perfect for office buildings, pinstripes and the occasional power lunch.
Out here is beautiful Arizona we also have a kissing cousin (which is really no relation at all) to the Bird of Paradise… The Mexican Bird of Paradise.
Vibrant red-orange-yellow clusters of never ending blooms are scattered throughout a floating cloud of lacy, fern-like, dark green.
These beauties are in full bloom from spring through autumn endlessly renewing and giving.
You will see them throughout the Valley of the Sun. A true work horse of floral beauty.
They’re just the kind of plant that makes Queenie smile. What flower makes you smile?
Until next time…Have a great day!!!
