Anigozanthos ‘Bush Pearl’ – Kangaroo Paw

Pearl has a dwarf habit with branched stems and prolific non-stop blooming performance. A reasonable garden plant but an outstanding kangaroo paw in a pot. Lovely, bird attracting pink flowers, which also make good cut flowers. Clean up dead flowers by cutting the stem plus the leaf fan that contains the stem close to the ground. Feed with a good native or general purpose fertiliser through the warm months and water when it is hot, dry or windy (or all three). A plant that produces as much floral display as Pearl needs proper food and water to be at its best.
