The first tropical flower that is a favorite in our Albuquerque florist shop is the bird of paradise. Here are some interesting facts on this tropical flower:

  • These flowers are also known as crane flowers.
  • They are a native of South Africa.
  • Birds of Paradise bloom from September to May.
  • Typically, these flowers are bound together in a tropical flower bouquet because they can bruise the other, more delicate flowers in the flower arrangement.
