L.A.’s Official Flower ~~

The other day I posted about the Coral Tree, the official tree of Los Angeles.Today I am posting about L.A.’s official flower, the Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia Reginae). Like the Coral Tree, the Bird of Paradise is a South African native. It grows 3 to 5 feet in height and blooms intermittently through the year, creating a colorful focal point in the city’s gardens.
