Whilst they lack the beauty of Reginae, I can't help but be fascinated by them. It has got to be because of the sheer scale of them.

Meanie:

Yes, they are just usually grown for the foliage and tall trunks in large clumps. They are so widely grown here because of their extreme drought tolerance.

Giant bird-of-paradise is very commonly grown in California. They bloom almost all year long also.
