Green Kangaroo Paw Seeds – Anigozanthos viridis
*** Approximately 70 seeds per packet ***
A very attractive small kangaroo paw species with narrow upright leaves on a clumping perennial plant. It flowers from late winter and extends through to early summer, in shades of bright green overlaid with bluish coloured velvety hairs, and are great for cut flowers. The flowers attract nectar feeding birds. Plant in a sunny or lightly shaded open position in the garden in moderately well-drained soils and regular watering.
SOWING INSTRUCTIONS – Sow in a protected position in autumn or spring. Scatter seeds thinly onto a good quality seed raising mix, and cover lightly with mix to the thickness of the seed. It is beneficial to germination to use a smoke treatment when you sow the seed, smoke granules are a fuss free way to do this- sachets of smoke granules are also available on this shop. Keep moist but not wet until germination starts. Germination should be in 2 to 6 weeks. Transplant seedlings to their own pot when large enough to handle. Keep watered and plant out to their permanent position when larger.
The Gardening With Angus seed range is a mix of species that are either wild sourced from licensed harvesters or superior species selections grown in cultivation. The seeds are thoroughly tested for quality, viability & germination. They are meticulously cleaned followed by oxygen deprivation storage, before being sealed for freshness within a heat sealed seed sachet.
