Bird of Paradise


Bird of Paradise is native to South Africa, where it is called Crane Flower widely cultivated throughout the world, and is the official flower of the city of Los Angeles, California. In their natural habitat, Bird of Paradise flowers are pollinated by Sunbirds, who perch on horizontal "beak" of the flower. The bird's weight presses down on the "beak", which causes the petals upright to spread and release their pollen on the legs of birds. When the bird lands on the flower to flower, some pollen standing drops or falls off, the new plant pollination. Birds of paradise plants add to the aesthetic value of any landscape design.
