White Bird of Paradise
I acquired these plants 3-4 years ago. They didn't grow too fast in the first year or two. Last Summer was a wet one and they got rained on a lot and they have taken off very quickly after that. Now they must have been at least 10 ft tall.
A few weeks ago, I noticed their first bloom. I have been waiting all these years and it was a joy to see what their bloom look like. There's another bloom peeking out next to it. I also didn't know that their blooms is close to the ground. What a strange thing.
