Anigozanthos ‘Landscape Gold’ – Kangaroo Paw

Landscape Gold is from the Tall and Tough range of kangaroo paws, and grows well in a good range of soil types and positions. Blooming generously from spring to summer with bright yellow and gold flowers which are attractive to nectar eating birds and insects, they also make great cut flowers. A once a year tidy up after the flowers die down make these easy care plants, simply cut the old flower and associated leaf sheath down close to the ground.

The plant does well in sun to part shade, lower light levels will slightly lessen the number of flowers. Feed with a good native fertilizer while flowering, and water in dry times as drought can lead to smaller blooms. Tolerant of light frost. If heavier frost burns the foliage, wait till all danger of frost has past and cut back hard to the ground, as kangaroo paws grow from underground rhizomes, they will resprout with fresh new growth.
