Anigozanthos flavidus ‘Landscape Violet’ – kangaroo paw

Anigozanthos Landscape Violet is from the Tall and Tough range from Gardening With Angus. It suits most soils and can be grown in sun to partial shade. Higher light levels will give  better flowering. This kangaroo paw begins flowering in spring with multi branched stems of beautiful subtle shades of purple to nearly white. They will attract birds to the garden, who love to perch on the stems as they feed on the nectar. They are also lovely eye catching cut flowers.

An easy care and fast growing plant which forms a large clump with mid green sword shaped leaves. It will tolerate wet spells. If the leaves become damaged from old age or extreme weather conditions such as frost, and when the flower stems die off, simply cut the old growth down close to the ground. The plant will reshoot from the underground rhizome.

This hardy tall kangaroo paw will grow with ease and perform well for many years, bearing masses of beautiful pale coloured flowers on the violet stems from spring through summer. ‘Landscape Violet’ has been selected for the great flower colour and for the healthy foliage. As it is a fast grower, it needs some feeding and watering through the warm months to reduce plant stress, which can lead to leaf spotting. A good native or general purpose fertilizer followed up with a good watering will ensure good growth.
