Anigozanthos ‘Bush Elegance’ – Kangaroo Paw

 

A wonderful smaller growing kangaroo paw, with distinct red to burgundy coloured flowers on branched stems. A relatively strong garden performer even in humid climates. Flowering season is limited to spring, but this makes it an easy care kangaroo paw as clean up of the dead flowers can be done at one time. Likes a well drained soil and a sunny spot. Great for massed planting, as a container plant, or for edging. Perfect fro smaller gardens to bring colour, and birds love the flowers. Mix with other coloured kangaroo paws for stunning effect.
