So named for its gorgeous, orange crane-like flowers, the bird of paradise is a native to South Africa and belongs to the Strelitiaceae family. Flowering indoors is rare, though the elegant, elongated leaves mean the bird of paradise is a striking houseplant, even without the flowers. The leaves tend to split over time, which is a natural adaptation to help them withstand hurricane-force winds in the tropics.
