The cultivar "Frosty Red" of Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos rufus hybrid) offers deep rust-red flower which can bloom year-round. "Frosty Red" includes a unique and striking feature with its flower stems, which bear the appearance of being coated in icy frost. A hardy, drought-resistant plant once established, it can thrive either in the ground or in pots, suiting various garden styles and locations. If planted in sandy soils, mixing in organic matter will help nourish and support the growth of this extraordinary plant.
For best results, prune "Frosty Red" hard to the ground in early Djeran (Autumn), and fertilise with native fertiliser during Djilba (late Winter to early Spring) and Djeran. Its frosty flower stems and rich red blooms create an impressive and vivid visual appeal in gardens, borders, or containers, adding an exotic and engaging touch to any outdoor setting.
