You can copy this plant care and use it as-is or make it your own.
Instruction By Steve Brigham Notes Emblematic of their native Western Australia, Kangaroo Paws are justly famous for their showy and interesting clusters of flowers which attract hummingbirds and other nectar-feeding birds. The many modern hybrids available are generally resistant to leaf diseases and make good drought-tolerant garden plants, as long as you give them good drainage and control snails and slugs. Plant sizes and flowering stem heights vary from dwarf to tall -- the tall ones in general make the most stunning show in the garden, and great cut-flowers too. Buy in bloom to get the flowers you want; look for brightly-colored tall varieties such as \'Big Red\' and \'Harmony\' (yellow) for the showiest display. Sunset Zones
