An eye-catching, black and lime green variety that varies from the commonly cultivated Anigozanthos Kangaroo Paw, as black and green flowers are rarely found with Australian native plants. These felty flowers sit high above the clumping, sword-shaped, blue-green leaves from late winter to early summer. Bird attracting. Some suggest cutting the plant back hard every autumn. This plant may only be available at specialist nurseries.
