Anigozanthus 'Harmony'

Anigozanthus ‘Harmony’

This is a red/yellow Kangaroo Paw with 2-3′ strappy sword-shaped leaves. Tall 4-5′ red stems branch at the top and burst with bright yellow flowers in summer through fall. They get their common name from the way each flower is fused into a tube, with a deep slit along the lower surface. It spreads out like a fan near the tip, giving it the silhouette of an animal’s paw.

Anigozanthos is native to Australia.

Cultivation Notes

Plant in a sunny and open position in the garden in well-drained soils. While many sites say regular water is required, ours appear to be very drought tolerant once established. Also claimed to be hardy to 9b, but our have survived down to 22F.
