A relatively tough, long-lived kangaroo paw of medium height and beautiful soft pink flower colour. This plant makes for a wonderful feature in a sunny, well drained spot in the garden and is tougher than many kangaroo paws in this size range. Cut off the spent flower stems and their associated leaves after flowering has finished to keep the plant looking its best.
