Strelitzia Reginae Aiton Mandelas Gold
Common name: Mandela's Gold Strelitzia, 
                                Yellow Crane Flower, Yellow Bird of Paradise, Yellow Strelitzia Geelkraanvoel Blom, Geel Piesang

Strelitzia Reginae Aiton Mandelas 
                                Gold
Strelitzia Mandela Gold (LHS) and Reginae (RHS)

Description: The yellow form of the Reginae has been around for many years cropping up in Europe, Australia, West coast of the USA, Japan and several places in Africa and The National Botanical Gardens at Kirstenbosh.

As they have only produced isolated flowers among the orange, cross pollination happened all the time, and the seeds would only produce the orange form. It took 20 years by John Winter at Kirstenbosch to produce and build up enough stock to sell on the open market and they were called "Kirstenbosh Gold". After several years it was renamed Mandela Gold after Nelson Mandela.
