Anigozanthos flavidus hybrid ‘Little Lorikeet’ – Kangaroo Paw

Another Tall and Tough perennial kangaroo paw, with velvety paw shaped red and green flowers in spring and summer. The blooms attract birds to the garden to feed, and make long lasting cut flowers. 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, heavy soils and waterlogging really well. Once flowering stems have died off, cut them back as this stimulates the plant to make fresh new leaves.
