Strelitzia nicolai

They have some beautiful 'Giant Bird of Paradise' plants at my local exotics centre, about 6' tall and at a great price (IMO) of £35. I just wondered how they fare in UK conservatories (unheated but frost free) and how big they could potentially grow to in a container?

I have seen them in the temperate section at wisley and I don't think that is heated!

My £5 ebay one has suffered leaf burn where it's topped out against the conservatory roof, it's pushing out a new roller so seems happy at any + temperatures. As long as your conservatory is 10ft high, they shouldn't be a problem :?
