Giant White Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia nicolai) Large mature plant with banana like foliage. 白鳥蕉成熟植株很高大且葉片如蕉.

Tropical large perennial.  Also as known as giant banana, although it is not a banana.  This large tropical perennial has good height.  So make sure you have enough space for them to grow.   Easy to grow in full sun to partial location in warm climate. Late spring to mid summer with large white and blue/violet flowers.   Flowers attract insects and birds.  Excellent for cut flower!  USDA Zones:10-11.  Mature size:15′-20′(H) X 4′-6′(W).  Its banana like foliage is excellent to grow indoor in pots.  It is excellent for green house with good height or indoor with sky light.  Propagate by seeds or division.

熱帶大型多年生草花.  又稱為白花天堂鳥和琉璃鳥蕉,雖然和吃的香蕉是不同的但葉片很像蕉類的葉子. 成熟植株的高度不矮,所以種時要注意預留成長的空間. 最好種在溫暖氣候區的全日照到半日照處或非溫暖氣候區的溫室裡..  春末到仲夏開白色的大花,花間帶著點藍紫色. 花吸引蜂蝶及鳥類.  很適合切花!  喜熱不耐寒.  成熟株高15-20呎,寬幅4-6呎.  由於葉如蕉類很大片有著熱帶的感覺所以常被用於室內觀葉的盆栽.  所以若有溫室或天窗/天井也是能種的.  繁殖方式以種子或分株為主.

This tropical fruit tree bears very sweet fruit!  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Suitable for growing in containers.  Late spring to early summer with small light green flowers and fruit slowly ripe later in fall.  Fruit is sweet and delicious!  USDA Zones:10+. Mature size:10′-12′(H) X 4′-20′(W) in tropical growing in the ground.  Lot of smaller when in pots.  Require quite a bit of fertilization.  If growing in cold climate will require over winter indoors in pot.   Propagate by seeds.   Seeds are toxic if ingested.  Fruit has to be harvest when they are very close to ripe otherwise will not be good enough for eating.  When fruit is ripe, the tortoise like shell gap will be open and become creamy yellow.

番荔枝它是熱帶水果,果實很甜!  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  適合盆植.  春末夏初時開綠色小花,果實成熟的很慢.  果實香甜好吃!  喜熱不耐寒.  成熟株高地植可達10-12呎,寬幅4-20呎.  當然盆植的話植株大小要小很多.  重肥.  溫帶地區盆植要於秋天轉涼前搬進室內過冬.  繁殖以種子來進行.  種子有毒勿食.  果實不可過早採收,太早採收無法續熟會無法食用.  果實成熟時似龜甲的外皮溝會變寬轉淡黃色.
