Anigozanthos 'Bush Bounty' is a smaller sized kangaroo paw, with green sword shaped leaves, and two-toned orange-yellow flower with purple tips. Flowers mostly in spring, and sporadically for the rest of the year. Humid climates can make the plant susceptible to black spotting of the leaves, growing it in a pot can help to improve the drainage and airflow for better health. Give it a good free draining soil and a sunny spot for best performance, and fertilise in spring with a good native low phosphorus plant food.
