Anigozanthos ‘Yellow Gem’ Kangaroo Paw

This plant has a large habit, and the flowers are also quite tall. A tough plant, which gives good garden performance. It has vibrant bicoloured red and yellow flower on highly branched stems. Flowering season limited to spring to summer. Feed well, and ensure it gets enough water when it is budding up, otherwise the flowers can abort. Each stem flowers once, so after the blooms are finished, cut that fan back to the base to tidy the plant.
