Anigozanthos Bush Ranger ~ Kangaroo Paws
The bright red flowers of Anigozanthos Bush Ranger last for several months. This is also a great cut flower. The distinctive look of the Kangaroo Paws will catch the attention of even the most discerning gardening snob. Anigozanthus Bush Ranger is a great addition to the perennial border in areas that are irrigated with drip irrigation. There is a black fungus that gets going on the iris-like leaves if the plants are watered with spray type irrigation, 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 the Kangaroo Paws infrequently once established. This dwarf cultivar gets to about 2 feet tall. Anigozanthos Bush Ranger is hardy to the low 20°'s. It is a the result of a cross between Anigozanthos humilis and Anigozanthos flavidus. It will grow in some shade but performs better in full sun.
