Anigozanthos ‘Bush Inferno’ Kangaroo Paw

 

A compact medium sized variety, forming a good sized clump. Bold red larger flowers mainly in spring and summer, spot flowering at other times, bird attracting and great cut flowers. Very good in Mediterranean climates,  not as vigorous in humid climates where they are best grown in pots. Feed before flowering and again after removing dead flower stems to stimulate new growth. Maintenance is easy, remove old leaf fans that have dead flowers attached, and damaged growth can also be pulled or cut off.
