This hybrid kangaroo paw has a dwarf habit and flowers prolifically. When given a good soil, regular water and feeding, it will be a spectacular performer. Not as vigorous in humid climates where it is disease-prone and best grown in a pot. Flowering season limited to mainly spring. It has a vibrant dark orange to red flower colour, and they make great cut flowers, as well as being bird attracting. Plant in well drained soil, likes a sunny position for best flowering.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
