Anigozanthos ‘Bush Fury’ – Kangaroo Paw

 

A great tough medium height kangaroo paw that flowers nearly all year round with dark red flowers. It attracts birds and native bees, and they make great cut flowers. It likes a well drained soil and a sunny spot, will also grow in light shade, but this can reduce flowering. Feed in spring before flowering, and again in autumn after cutting back the summer flowers, as this stimulates new shoots. Care is simple, cut untidy foliage down to the ground, as the plant will reshoot from the underground rhizome. A good disease resistant variety.
