Anigozanthos 'Bush Games' is a reasonably tough red and green kangaroo paw with good colour definition. A perennial plant to about a metre and a half tall, it has strappy clumping leaves, and grows from underground rhizomes. Performs best in a sunny spot and well drained soil. Once the flowers die back, they can be cut back hard to the ground, which will tidy the plant and encourage new shoots. The flowers were used in the 2000 Olympic games.
