Anigozanthos Kangaroo Paw Kangaroo Paw &#039;Bush Crystal&#039; is in flower now in my garden. Hopefully, we will enjoy iridescent pink flowers in profusion atop branched stems all throughout spring and summer. Deep green foliage arches around the flower stems creating an interesting colour contrast to the brightly coloured flowers. The nectar is highly attractive to many creatures such as small possums and honeyeater birds. Endemic to areas of southwest Australia, Anigozanthos is a small genus of Australian plants in family Haemodoraceae; just 11 species and a few sub-species commonly known as kangaroo paw due to the shape of their flowers when fully open. In recent years a number of hybrids and cultivars (of which this is one), have been developed. Stems on this cultivar up to 60 cm. <br />

Anigozanthos Kangaroo Paw
