A huge bird of paradise plant in full bloom

It never ceases to amaze me. I have a very small one and it will be a while before it produces a bloom but I love these things. The coloring is so awesome.

Is it in Your garden or house? Can one keep it ?

This one was in a huge greenhouse, it was about 5ft tall too! Do you keep yours indoors Skippy? I guess AZ climate would allow you to keep it outside? Nelke, you can get them and keep them but I think they like hot conditions. A friend of my mum has one in her conservatory but it doesn't always flower for her and it's very small.

Thanks, RF, - I myself wouldn´t try. I have only 4 inside-plants. The rest must stay outside.
