An unusual and beautiful flower colour in kangaroo paws varying from snow white when grown in warmer temperatures to white with a pink overtone in cooler conditions. Dwarf habit with branched stems and prolific non-stop blooming performance. A reasonable garden plant and outstanding in a pot. Prefers a sunny position and well drained soils for best performance. Cut dead flowers back close to the ground if needed. A plant that multiplies and flowers as prolifically as Diamond uses a lot of energy, so be sure to feed and water regularly for best continuing performance.

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.
