Anigozanthos ‘Bush Dance’ – Kangaroo Paw

 

 

A smaller variety with beautiful red and green paw flowers, set against attractive blue grey leaves. It can be short lived as a garden plant, but is outstanding as a potted feature plant. Likes a sunny spot, well drained soil. Main flowering is in spring and again in autumn. Drying out when the buds are developing can lead to malformed flowers. Clean up after flowering by cutting back the dying flowers long with the leaf fan that goes with it, as this will help open the plant up for good air flow. Any damaged leaves are also easily cleaned by pulling them off.
