Q.Strelizia Straggly

Anonymous added on February 1, 2014 | Answered

We have a bird of paradise about 20 year old that is looking very straggly. If I cut it all off at a low level to neaten it up, will it grow again from the center?

I would not cut it back by more than 1/3 a year, unless you are removing dead material. All dead material can be removed. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/bop/bird-of-paradise-pruning.htm
