Variegated Bird of Paradise

17 years ago

A nursery owner down in San Diego who had a variegated Bird of Paradise plant was kind enough to give me about 10 seeds from one of the flower stalks. He (and others) warned me that the seeds were very unlikely to produce variegated plants. He had tried hundreds of seeds and only one variegated plant was all he had for his efforts.

Well against all odds, one of the seeds he gave me produced a variegated seedling. Its one of those plants that I always wanted, but never thought I would get. You just don't see them for sale anywhere.
