Anigozanthos rufus ‘Kings Park Federation Flame’ – Kangaroo Paw


The stunning bright orange flowers on a reasonably tall branched flower stem along with grey-green foliage are the key features of this beautiful kangaroo paw. Use it as bird attracting feature plant for a sunny well drained spot in the garden or as a container plant. Cut the spent flower stems back to ground level at the end of flowering to keep the plant tidy. Feed with a good native or general purpose fertiliser in spring and water in well afterwards.
