Kangaroo Paw

Yesterday at the Dunedin Botanic Gardens we managed to include the Australian garden in our wandering; to my delight the kangaroo paw plants had flower heads in the early stages of blooming. Kangaroo paw flowers (Anigozanthos species and hybrids) are some of my favourites!

The first two images are cropped from photos taken by Nigel, the rest are from photos taken by me.

These are tall! Shorter ones are available but the tall ones look great in this space.

    1. I haven’t got on to them so early in the season before. We’ll be back there at Christmas and will check on their progress. I’ve photographed them in mid-January before and they were ablaze in great glory at that point!
