strelizia regina jan

strelizia regina jan (Strelizia Regina)

Always wanted to grow one of these from seed so last November i did, this was taken yesterday, only 3-4 years till flowering, still good things come to those who wait, the flower pot was a present from my daughter when she was at school a few years ago.

Wonderful you ve grown this from seed I love them, it just makes me mad when you go to garden centres and they place a plastic flower in the pot fooling people to think it s in flower well done with the germenation of this and the pot is pretty which your daughter gave you from school.
