Yellow Bird Of Paradise Bush
Mountain States Nursery
Upright fast growing small tree or large shrub to 10' tall by 8' wide. Clusters of yellow flowers have long red stamens. Natural growth habit is irregular and open, but can be pruned to encourage dense growth. Originally from Argentina & Uruguay. Quite hardy and can be frost deciduous. As pods mature, they split spewing seeds. Ripe seeds are poisonous. May be somewhat invasive but easy to control. Drought tolerant. More open and woodier than pulcherrima.
