Your bird of paradise looks stressed put it in the shade and stand it in a bucket of water for a couple of days, see what happens..

Yes, DrCase is quite right. The pot is too big. They are like agapanthus, like to be packed inside a pot. I usually enrich the soil with horse manure after flowering. They can take a lot of abuse. Don't worry too much. Make sure they are indoors when it snows or is cold though!
