Anigozanthos ‘Bush Pioneer’ – Kangaroo Paw


Unusual gold coloured flowers with red stems on an extremely tough tall growing plant. A great garden and larger landscaping plant which has stood the test of time. Spring to summer flowering, which attracts birds, and is good for long lasting cut blooms. It grows from an underground rhizome, so once established, the plant can be cut back hard to the ground and will reshoot with fresh clean growth. Likes a well drained soil, flowers best in a sunny spot. Feed with a good native fertiliser in late winter to spring.
