Default Re: What New Seeds Did You Get ???

Just a quick note; I noticed you bought the 3 "Birds of Paradise" seed. I hope you arent expecting that the first packet of seed is anything like the other 2. Its also called Dwarf Poinciana and Pride of Barbados. Its nothing like the other 2 Birds and not even in the same family. It grows into a medium size bush with leaves like a legume, which is the family it belongs to. The flowers come in different colors; lavender, yellow, white, orange, and red. Orange is the most common, so thats probably what you've got. The seed will also germinate much faster than the True Birds of Paradise. It doesnt have the Latin name on the White Bird packet, so if you're interested, its Strelitzia Nicolai. You can google images of them to see the differences.
