Anigozanthos 'Bush Volcano' is a small growing variety of kangaroo paw. It has prolific vibrant dark orange flowers in autumn, winter and spring. The blooms are highly attractive to birds, and can be used for cut flowers. Not as vigorous in humid climates where it is disease-prone and best grown in a pot, where it can get good drainage. Feed with a good low phosphorus native fertiliser in spring. Best if a sunny position.
