This is an Australian perennial that is prized for its unusual flowers that somewhat resemble the curving shape of a kangaroo’s paw. Long strap-like green leaves emerge from a clump that is ultimately 6’ tall by 2’ wide. In the spring through summer, the tubular bright red flowers borne on tall stalks make a striking statement outdoors or as cut flowers indoors. They attract hummingbirds and bees and are long-lived. Place in full sun and give regular water in well-drained soil. They are hardy to 20-25°F.
