Artist's Description

Rare yellow form of Strelitzia reginae – named for everyone’s favourite Matiba, Nelson Mandela.

Originally named Kirstenbosch Gold, it took 20 years of cultivation from yellow strezzies at Kirstenbosch before they finally released it in 1996.

The Gold has to be hand-pollinated as the pollenating bird has not been identified and does not exist around the Cape Town area.

Kirstenbosch are OK with this since this strain of pure yellow strez would not stay true in the wild with the presence of the normal orange strain.
