Kangaroo Paws

Wind resistant Kangaroo Paws (Anigozanthus cultivars)

After three days of gale force winds with gusts in excess of 100km an hour ,there is not much left of the Spring blossom trees.
 Kangaroo Paws are one of the great plants which have adapted well to our harsh climate and put on a great show regardless of the weather.There is a whole range of interesting varieties available in a range of colours. They require a bit of maintenance such as removal of spent flowers and thinning out a clump if they become congested. A side dressing of organic fertilizer after flowering keeps them happy. Birds love the flowers as well.
