Anigozanthos manglesii - red & green kangaroo paw

DESCRIPTION: Clumping grass-like plant with blue-green strappy foliage, flowers in spring with furry dark red and green flowers shaped in bud like a kangaroo paw.
PLANTING: Sow seeds year-round in most locations avoiding extreme heat and cold. Natives can require a little more care than the average flowering perennial, but are well worth the effort. Sterilise the seed raising mix in an oven for 30 minutes at 180ºC. When cool, pot up, sprinkle the seeds on the surface, gently pat down, water and keep moist. A sprinkle of Mr Fothergill's seed starter granules will help move things along. Place seed pot in a larger container and fill this container with water to one-quarter up the side of the seed pot. Top up as needed. Cover trays with a layer of clear plastic to help retain moisture, remove plastic once seedlings begin to emerge and place in a warm shady spot. Transfer seedlings at approximately 7cm high. For best flowering, plant in a full sun location. Prefers free draining acid soil. Trim and divide clumps late autumn or early winter.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and infrequently as the plants mature. Tolerates light frost once established. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil and fertilise using a native slow release fertiliser.
