About This Plant
Dappled bright shade. Perennial, with swordlike leaves that typically disappear in summer and return with cooler weather. They spread from shallow rhizomes in well-drained soil; protect them from excess irrigation in summer or they will be short-lived.
An unusual specimen locally, Kangaroo Paws are superficially similar to iris or crinum and used similarly in the landscape typically in mass plantings. Red or yellow flowers appear in spring on branched stems; many cultivars are available.
Native to Western Australia, Anigozathos have been in cultivation in California since 1902.
