Anigozanthos ‘Bush Diamond’ – Kangaroo Paw

An unusual and beautiful flower colour in kangaroo paws varying from snow white when grown in warmer temperatures to white with a pink overtone in cooler conditions. Dwarf habit with branched stems and prolific non-stop blooming performance. A great garden plant and outstanding in a pot. The flowers are very popular for cut flower production. Prefers a sunny position and well drained soils for best performance. Cut dead flowers back close to the ground to tidy the plant. A plant that multiplies and flowers as prolifically as Diamond uses a lot of energy, so be sure to feed and water regularly for best continuing performance.
