Anigozanthos ‘Landscape Scarlet’ – Kangaroo Paw

A strappy leafed upright plant, it bears beautiful tall red flowers in spring and summer. A great garden and larger landscaping plant with a nice form which has stood the test of time. The flowers attract birds, and are good for long lasting cut blooms. It grows from an underground rhizome, so once established, if the leaves suffer blackening from frost or high winds, the plant can be cut back hard to the ground and will reshoot with fresh clean growth . Likes a well drained soil, flowers best in a sunny spot. Feed with a good native fertiliser in late winter to spring.
