Anigozanthos 'Bush Pioneer' is a tall growing kangaroo paw with unusual golden orange coloured flowers. It is a relatively tough perennial plant with mid green sword shaped leaves and well branched flower stems. Flowering season is in late spring and summer, and the blooms attract nectar loving wildlife, and make good cut flowers. Best in full sun in well drained soil. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring. Kangaroo paws grow from underground rhizomes, and old dead flowers stems can be cut back hard to the ground to encourage fresh growth from the rhiozomes.
