Q.Bird of Paradise, Cutting Back

Anonymous added on April 30, 2011 | Answered

Can a Bird of Paradise plant be given a really hard cut back to about 20 cm, or will it not recover? I have two plants that need a drastic tidy up so I can clean up the garden around them.

Cut back the plant by no more than 1/3 per year. Cutting back anymore than that will kill it. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/bop/bird-of-paradise-pruning.htm
