Anigozanthos 'Regal Velvet' is a medium sized paw with red and green paw shaped flowers. It has quite good vigour, and is reasonably resistant to inkspot disease. It blooms in spring and summer, and can be used for cut flowers. Flower colour is not as bright as other red/green cultivars but it is a tougher plant. Plant is full sun, in a good open soil. Once the flower stems die down, cut it back hard to the ground. Fertilise in spring.
