Who doesn’t love the unique blooms and overall dramatic appearance of tall “Kangaroo Paws”? Much prized as a long-lived accent plant with low water needs, it’s just the best in well-drained gardens and containers (15+ gal). Loads of curious fuzzy golden-yellow “flowers” appear like curving fingers on perfectly contrasting, branching red stems to 4’ tall. Strappy evergreen 2-3’ foliage is held in “fans”. Each “fan” of leaves only blooms once, so cut used fans by two-thirds in Winter to promote new ones. Blooming from late Spring to early Fall , cut spent spikes for awesome cut flowers and to keep the blooms coming. Bees and hummers! Deer resistant!
