Description

This is a very unusual Kangaroo Paw.  Perennial tufted plants with grey strap-like leaves and black & chartreusse flower stems. Suitable for full sun or partial shade positions, coastal or inland. Prefers summer watering around Ojai. Damaged by frost but foliage can be cut back in spring for flowering most of the year. Sometimes attacked by fungus known as ink disease which is an inky-black spotting on the leaves. Kangaroo Paws are excellent cut flowers and great container plants.
