A Bit More

Another of the very popular Kangaroo Paw hybrids, ‘Bush Pearl’ bears pale pink furry flowers in racemes from late spring to fall. As you may know, the flowers have excellent staying power when cut and displayed indoors. It bears the customary long grass-like leaves of the Anigozanthos which will provide foliage year-round. Achieving 3’ tall with its flower stalks and an 18” spread, it is desirable but not mandatory to divide them in the spring. Excellent in Sunset Western Garden zones 15-24, it will do best in full sun. Try not to keep the “paws” or roots wet by providing well-drained soil and moderate water. Though drought tolerant, it will need to mature before earning this title. Boething Treeland Farms grows them in 1 and 5 gallons and suggests using them in beds, containers, or mass plantings for dramatic effect.
