This kangaroo paw is a taller landscaping plant, with bright red, very branching flowers. A very tough plant, with great garden performance. Best in a sunny spot, and well drained soil. Once established it is reasonably drought and light frost tolerant. It grows from an underground rhizome, so the plant can be cut back to ground level after flowering, to rejuvenate the plant.
