Ruby Velvet™ Anigozanthos is a kangaroo paw with bold red flowers and is one of the most compact mid sized Kangaroo paws available.
It repeat flowers in Spring and Autumn, and is more black spot resistant than most Kangaroo paw types. Its vivid ruby coloured flowers are a real highlight in any garden.
Ruby Velvet™ Anigozanthos is a relatively frost hardy plant as far as Kangaroo paws go, and will survive in full sun, to light shade. They love free draining soils, but Ruby copes well in heavier soils.
After flowering, remove the old flowering stems and leaves to encourage new growth and flowers for the following season. In late winter pruneRuby Velvet™ Anigozanthos back close to the ground, and give it a good dose of Slow release fertiliser.
Ruby Velvet™ Anigozanthos red flowers will just add so much colour to any Landscape.
