Anigozanthos Bush Lantern ~ Kangaroo Paws

The bright yellow flowers of Anigozanthos Bush Lantern last for several months. This is a great cut flower. The distinctive look of the Kangaroo Paws will catch the attention of even the most discerning plant-aholic. There is a black fungus that gets going on the iris-like leaves and this is hard to get rid of. It is caused by excessive overhead watering. I usually put them on a drip system and water them infrequently once established. This dwarf cultivar gets to about 2 feet tall. It is hardy to the low 20's. It is a cross between Anigozanthos humilis and Anigozanthos bicolor. It will grow in some shade but performs better in full sun.
