Anigozanthos hybrid ‘Tufty Green’ – Kangaroo Paw

A new Tall and Tough perennial kangaroo paw, with velvety paw shaped flowers in shades of green in spring and summer. The blooms attract birds to the garden to feed, and make long lasting cut flowers. This variety has quite narrow leaves, and is attractive in its own right even when not flowering as it makes an upright grassy looking clump. It suits most soils and can be grown in sun to part shade. It is a fast grower, it needs some feeding and watering through the warm months to perform at its best. The Tall and Tough paws handle humidity, heavier soils and soggy spells well. Once flowering stems have died off, cut them back as this stimulates the plant to make fresh new leaves.
