Unusual form of this popular tropical plant, the slender upright leaves take up much less space in a garden while still giving you those fabulous flowers. Slow growing, non-spreading, well-behaved in containers or borders. The young plants look like ordinary bird of paradise, and will develop the rush leaves as they grow and mature.
