Stunning tropical leaves fan out from a central trunk on thick, strong stems. Vibrant flowers that resemble a bird in flight are excellent for floral arranging. Where hardy, use as specimen or accent, or use in a courtyard garden. In cold regions, grow in a container and overwinter this beauty indoors. Plants can grow to be quite large.
