Yellow Bird of Paradise
|Description||Large, exotic, yellow flowers with striking long red stamens adorn this open, fine-textured shrub. Wonderful for use as an informal specimen, or to plant in groups as a textural hedge or screen. This high-heat tolerant shrub adds superb color to minimal care, waterwise gardens. Often remains semi-evergreen in mild winter regions.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Large, open, moderate growing shrub; reaches 4 to 6 ft. tall and wide.|
|Care||Thrives in a wide range of soils, provided they are fast-draining. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought. No fertilization is necessary; this plant fixes nitrogen in the soil and needs little care.|
