Anigozanthos 'Green Dragon' is a clumping herbaceous perennial with lovely emerald green and cream paw shaped flowers. It has a dwarf habit with unbranched stems. A short-lived garden plant but outstanding in a pot. Grow in a sunny spot in a well drained soil, and fertilise in spring with a good slow release fertiliser. A sprinkle of snail pellets will control slugs and snails, which love the new growth.
