Anigozanthos ‘Bush Matilda’ – Kangaroo Paw

A good medium sized kangaroo paw with yellow flowers, which are great for cut flowers and to attract nectar feeding birds to the garden.  Easy care plants, simply pull off any leaves that get brown to tidy, and once flowering has finished, cut back each leaf fan to the ground. Or if the plant is well established, the whole plant can be cut back for fresh new growth. Not phosphorus sensitive, so any fertilizer is fine. Be sure to water adequately when budding up, but otherwise drought tolerant.
