These can take a surprising amount of wind before the leaves will start shreding, however an exposed site, prone to constant wind would be best avoided. Strelitzias are a very recognizable family of plants with robust, evergreen foliage and beautiful flowers which resemble tropical birds. They enjoy large amounts of water and do best when fertilized well. Even if you do not live in a tropical region, Strelitzias can easily be grown as potted plants.
