For those who didn’t recognize the flower in the close up I put in the previous post, here it is. The iconic Australian Kangaroo Paw
Kangaroo paws belong to the genus Anigozanthos, which has 11 species.
The colour and form of kangaroo paws make them one of the most rewarding Australian native plants for the home garden. Kangaroo paws are also very good cut flowers. They are exported to many parts of the globe and are grown commercially in the USA, Israel and Japan.
