Anigozanthos 'Bush Bonanza' is a dwarf kangaroo paw with lightly branched red stems and yellow flowers. A strong and upright grower, but not as vigorous in humid climates where it is best grown in a pot. Flowers mostly in spring, with some stems through the rest of the year. Likes a sunny spot in welld rained soil. Kangaroo paws grow from an underground rhizome, which means that old spent flowering stems can be cut back hard to the ground. The plant will reshoot from the rhizomes. Birds love the nectar rich flowers.
