Pink Anigozanthos or Kangaroo’s Paw is a unique, exotic flower in a rather unique color. The most commonly seen color is yellow or deep red. It is native to Australia, a tufted evergreen, a rhizomatous perennial. They are more colorful in lower temperatures. This is because they react to their environment.
Kangaroo’s Paw has a long flowering season from late spring to late fall, especially if you cut the dead flowers. The foliage which is at the base is evergreen and it has arching upright leaves. The tall species can be as high as 6ft or 2m. Dwarf versions are more short-lived. It is a very striking yet unusual plant in the landscape.
