Anigozanthos 'Bush Ranger' is a kangaroo paw with a dwarf habit with branched stems of orange red flowers. It is noted for the prolific non-stop blooming performance, drought and moderate frost hardiness, and bird attractiveness. A reasonable garden plant but outstanding in a pot, it likes a sunny spot with well drained soil. Bush Ranger is moderately resistant to ink spot disease. Fertilise in spring with a good native fertiliser. Cut the plant back hard every couple of years in autumn to rejuvenate the plant.
