Strelitzia reginae 'Kirstenbosch Gold'
19th April 2008
This is a pale form of the Bird of Paradise flower distributed by Kirstenbosch Botanic Garden
(also under the name 'Mandela's Gold'). I have a young seedling (and I can't even claim I managed to germinate that myself -
none of mine came up!)
This is the plant flowering at Wisley. Even at my most optimistic, I will not be seeing flowers on mine for the best part of a decade.
