The Rush-leaved Strelitzia (or Narrow-leaved Bird of Paradise), Strelitzia juncea, is a monocotyledonous flowering plant and is indigenous to South Africa. This drought resistant Strelitzia occurs sparingly near Uitenhage, Patensie and just north of Port Elizabeth. It is threatened in part, by illegal removal for horticultural purposes. This species is thought to be one of the most frost resistant of the Strelitzia genus.
