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.
