The yellow flowers are pollinated by birds in Australia which can reach the nectar with their long beaks. A beautiful, compact plant for the patio or balcony.

Family: Haemodoraceae
Scientific name: Anigozanthos flavidus 'yellow'
Common name: Yellow kangaroo paw
Origin: Southwestern Australia

The yellow kangaroo paw can be kept as a container plant in a temperate climate, because the plant can’t withstand frost. Because the plant does not grow large by nature (about 1m high), a container/pot is well suited for a patio or balcony. The kangaroo paw produces a rhizome (rootstock) which enables the plant to survive after a forest fire: through the rhizome, the plant can grow again. The flowers are pollinated in Australia by birds with longs beaks who can drink the nectar out of the flowers. Up to 350 flowers can be formed per plant. An extraordinary amount if you ask me.

High germination rate on a 1:1 sand: peat subrate. To break dormancy some wood ash was mixed in the subrstate. In roughly 3 weeks germination occurred.
