Tall Red Kangaroo Paw Seeds – Anigozanthos flavidus


*** Approximately 70 seeds per packet ***

This wild species kangaroo paw is the most reliable and long lived of this group, and has tall spikes of red flowers in spring and summer. It is a great bird attracting garden plant, and is good for cut flowers. The leathery, dark green leaves are very tough and tend to hold up better against ink spot than all other kangaroo paws. Tall kangaroo paws are great easy care landscaping plants. Removing the dead flower stems and their associated foliage after flowering plus a handful of any good fertiliser is about all the care they need. It is very tolerant of a wide range of soil types including clay soils. It is also tolerant of humidity and quite damp positions as well.

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.
