Kangaroo Paws

Anigozanthos and Macropidia species and cultivars

Family: Haemodoraceae


All the original species of Anigozanthos occur naturally in Western Australia, so it is hardly suprising that these plants aren't reliable in SE Qld. However, if you're keen, they are worth experimenting with in terms of varieties and positions, because they can be successful. Top of the list to try should be A. flavidus or hybrids with an A. flavidus parent.

The genus has been the subject of breeding work which has produced cultivars for landscaping use, as well for the cut-flower industry. Breeding has the potential to bring about improvement in plant vigour and ink disease resistance, as well as flower qualities.

More information will be added as this page develops.
