Kangaroo Paw. With strap-like leaves and unusual flowers, these attractive Western Australian plants are excellent for rockeries. Kangaroo Paws produce their velvety tubular flowers at the end of long, stiff stems and these come in a marvelous range of colours – green, green and red, various reds, yellow and orange. Containing copious quantities of nectar, the flowers attract honeyeaters. The long-stemmed flower heads, which retain their colour when dried, make excellent cut flowers for indoor arrangements.
