Plant of the Month: Anigozanthos Big Red

Our plant of the month for August is Anigozanthos ‘Big Red’. Anigozanthos ‘Big Red’ is a vigorous Kangaroo Paw, which produces a profusion of red velvety flowers from spring through to autumn. The strong architectural features of the Kangaroo Paw with its dramatic, colourful flowers rising above neat clumps of strappy green leaves make this Australian perennial plant a must have for the modern garden. The flowers attract nectar feeding birds and are a valuable cut flower. Perfectly suited for container growing or mass planted in the garden for a stunning display. Prune flower stems back to ground level after flowering. Full sun, 1m high x 1metre wide.
