Anigozanthos 'Rampaging Roy Slaven' is a strappy leafed perennial plant with dark orange flowers on a well branched stem. It is a medium sized plant, a good garden performer with an extended flowering period, from spring to summer, and through to autumn. It likes full sun, and well drained soil. In heavier soils, build up the garden bed to improve drainage, or grow in large containers. Fertilise in early spring with a slow release fertiliser. Remove old flowers to tidy the plant, and any old diseased foliage.
