Anigozanthos Ruby Slippers
Anigozanthos rufus selection
A small neat Kangaroo Paw with grey-green strap foliage and massed rich red flowers clustered on red stems in late winter-spring. Suited to cool temperate to arid climates, in well drained gravelly or sandy soils, neutral to low acid pH. A bright eye-catching cottage-style selection for open sunny gardens; spectacular container plant; dramatic when planted alongside contrasting coloured Anigozanthos. Excellent long-lasting cut flower. Protect from frost. Trim out spent flower stems, and feed with low phosphorus native fertilizer early spring or late summer.
