Anigozanthos ‘Rampaging Roy Slaven’ – Kangaroo Paw

This kangaroo paw is a great garden performer with an extended flowering period, from spring to autumn. It is a medium sized plant with plenty of flowers. It has dark orange flowers on a well branched stem, which are great bird attractors and make excellent long lasting cut flowers. Cut back dead flowers down to ground level to tidy the plant if needed. Kangaroo paws grow from an underground rhizome, so if damaged by frost or stress, you can cut them right back hard and the plant will reshoot with fresh new growth from the rhizome.
