Here's another fabulous plant from Australia. It's Kangaroo Paw or Anigozanthos. Say Annie-go-ZAN-thus. It loves full sun, well-drained soil and but die from overwatering. This is one plant that is doing well in my super sandy soil. The leaves grow from 2-3' tall. The flowers rise up 3-4' tall. They come in yellow as you see plus orange, red, pink and green. Mine did take about a year to get going. But now it's blooming it's head off! There are new dwarf varieties but I love the big ones.
