A hardy variety of hybrid kangaroo paw that has stood the test of time. It is a smaller growing variety with 1 metre tall lightly branched red-orange stems which contrast beautifully with the bright yellow flowers. The strappy green upright foliage is also a feature. Grows well in all areas where there is good drainage, also great in large containers and self watering planters. Flowers in spring to summer and they make great cut flowers. Nectar loving birds are attracted to feed on the flowers. Feed in late winter to early spring when the flower buds are developing, once flowers begin to die off they can be removed to rejuvenate the plant- instructions for this are here>>>

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
