See the source imageHi Everyone! 

Are you enjoying the beginning of fall? Today I am so far sun is out, weather warm with some humidity. Later today it will not be too pleasant as more thunderstorms come in. Grant you I believe we do need the rain but not in such downpours.

Today I found a very interesting plant – red-kangaroo-paw
This curious plant is call Kangaroo Paw – red. How did it get that name? The flower looks like a Kangaroo Paw.

Types of Kangaroo Paws Plant

There is a new Christmas season plant on the market and its name is the Red and Green kangaroo paws (Anigozanthos manglesii), otherwise marketed as Kanga. Known as the floral emblem of Western Australia, this plant is referred to as reindeer paws in the United States and has unique red and green flower coloration. The cultivar Anigozanthos ‘Bush Emerald’ has similar colored flowers and is generally easier to grow.

Other kangaroo paws worthy of cosseting are:

  • See the source image‘Bush Ranger’ – a drought tolerant cultivar with orange flowers, which can also tolerate mild frosts.
  • ‘Dwarf Delight’ – a long living, frost hardy variety Anigozanthos flavidus or
  • ‘Tall Kangaroo Paw’ – a type that adapts to many types of soil conditions and climates, although still delicate in heavy frost
  • See the source image‘Pink Joey’ – a variety with salmon pink flower spires
  • ‘Black Kangaroo Paw’ (Macropidia fuliginosa) – which should be grown in well-draining soil in full sun and is particularly susceptible to frosty climes. It has black hairs through which its green can be seen. Read more at Gardening Know How: Kangaroo Paws Plant – How To Plant And Care For Kangaroo Paws https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/kangaroo-paws/kangaroo-paws-houseplant.htm

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on greatstorybook.com Thank you for stopping by!
