Characteristics

The Anigozanthos is a grassy plant with flowers in the shape of a Kangaroo paw. The Anigozanthos is found in nature in Australia and is even considered a national symbol there.

The Anigozanthos is a Greek name meaning 'unevenly flowery'. This describes the Anigozanthos exactly: no flower is the same. On long days, with at least 12 hours of daylight, the Anigozanthos will bloom. The bloom consists of the breaking open of the flower tubes in the shape of a star.

Care

The cultivated Anigozanthos, unlike her brother, has a great need for sufficient water in the wild. The Anigozanthos creates taproots that look for the groundwater. The plant can deal well with wet feet; so do give plenty of water.

 

The Anigozanthos can thrive both indoors and outdoors. This does require different care.

 

Anigozanthos indoor

  • place the plant in a spot with lots of light;
  • give the plant plenty of water every three days;
  • remove faded / aged flower stalks;
  • if the color fades, the plant can be placed outside. The color will then come back. Due to direct sunlight, large flower stalks will age. The plant will form new flower stalks by itself.

 

Anigozanthos outdoor

  • do not place the plant in the garden until the temperature no longer falls below five degrees Celsius;
  • place the plant in half shade or full sun. The plant will have to get used to direct sunlight, which will age older flower stalks;
  • the plant thrives best in a pot, but can also be planted in the garden as an annual bloomer;
  • if it does not rain, give the plant plenty of water every two days.
