Anigozanthos 'Bush Inferno' is a smaller growing kangaroo paw to around 0.6 metres tall, with dark green strappy leaves and bright red flowers. Honey eater birds love the flowers, which are also good in a vase. It has a shorter flowering season, mainly in spring, but has masses of flower spikes. Not as vigorous in humid climates where it is disease-prone and best grown in a pot. Grow in a sunny spot, and protect from slug and snail damage by a sprinkling of snail pellets from time to time.
