Description: Ruby Velvet™ Anigozanthos is a smaller Kangaroo Paw with clean, compact foliage that reaches 30cm – 40cm. It has an abundance of bold red flowers that reach to 70cm – 80cm high.

Size: 40cm high x 30cm wide.

Uses: Feature pots and low maintenance gardens. For lowest maintenance it is best planted behind/in between evergreen strappy leaf plants.

Position: Full sun open position. Best suits well drained soils or raised gardens, avoid wet feet. Tolerates frost and drought.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil level. If required use a native slow release fertiliser in spring. Remove older flower stems and cut back foliage every 1-2 years, unless planted in bands between strappy leaf plants.

Where it works: NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA & QLD (in northern QLD it is shorter lived, approx. 2-3 years. South it is longer term.)
