Strelitzia Caudata
African Desert Banana, Transvaal Wild Banana 
                                or Mountain Strelitzia

Description: Caudata is a very difficult plant to find, they grow up in the mountains of Swaziland, South Africa. On occasion, when collectors have gone to find seeds, they have already been taken by natural predators or are stale because of the wet weather. I have found that these seeds are the most expensive and hardest Strelitzia to obtain. We are undertaking large plantings of this variety to get a constant supply.

Can be used as a house plant, has large leaves just like the Nicolai.

Plant Availability: very limited at this time.

Height: 4-5m.

Origin: South Africa

Location: Swaziland.

Flowering: Large cream flowers.

Culture and Propagation: The same as all Strelitzia Nicolai and Reginae.
