Anigozanthos ‘Bush Blitz’ – Kangaroo Paw

 

An incredibly prolific flowering plant of small to medium stature with branched stems. A terrific performer in a container. Flowering season limited to spring, which makes for an easy clean up once the blooms die off. It needs good feeding in late winter and again as it buds up to maintain good health, as that many flowers uses a lot of the plant’s resources.
