The Strelitzia reginae (also known as the Crane Flower or Bird-of-Paradise flower) is a sturdy indigenous shrub that's popular in gardens because of the striking orange and blue, bird-like flowers.

The flowers produce nectar that attracts a variety of insects and garden birds, including colorful sunbirds.
