Anigozanthos 'Gold Velvet' is a strappy leaf perennial plant with golden yellow paw flowers with orange bases. It is a relatively tough medium sized paw with quite good vigour. Limited flowering season with branched stems. A good landscaping plant, and is also great in a large pot. This kangaroo paw has been bred to be more cold hardy.
Anigozanthos grows from an underground rhizome, which enables the plant to regenerate after being cut back hard. Remove dead flowers to keep the plant tidy.
