Anigozanthos ‘Bush Endeavour’ – Kangaroo Paw


This is a tough and good looking kangaroo paw that gives great garden and larger landscaping performance. It has vibrant red flower colour on highly branched stems. Flowers from spring to summer, and attracts wildlife such as nectar feeding birds. Also great for floral work. Likes a well drained soil, blooms best in full sun and can be grown in part shade. Feed in spring with a good native fertiliser. The plant grows from an underground rhizome, so if it becomes untidy, cut back hard to the ground and it will reshoot with fresh new growth.
