|Our old plant at our last home - believe me - it did flower!|
Once we were settled in our current home and started to establish our garden, a new Strelitzia was on our shopping list and we bought a fairly sizeable plant with one existing flower spike and the promise of more. The first summer it languished, being both shredded by winds and scorched by full sun in our exposed yard, so we moved it to the shelter of our house and partial shade under our verandah. For two years it has continued to grow, produced masses of green leaves and yet no flowers until a single solitary spike this summer. We are very disappointed and it's on Philip's hit list if it doesn't perform soon!
