Bird of Paradise Reginae, Strelitzia reginae
Regina is the small bird of paradise.  The tropical shrub was discovered in Africa in the eighteenth century.  Be patient for flowers to appear after planting.  It often takes years but is worth the wait.

You can't help but be drawn by the bird of paradise flowers.  They do well as an accent plant.  Reginae will reach a height of about three feet.
