Anigozanthos 'Orange Cross' (Orange Kangaroo Paw) - Evergreen perennial. Full sun. Low water needs. Grows to 4-5 ft tall by 2-3 feet wide with orange flowers in summer. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. Full sun, good drainage and occasional summer water. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. Attracts hummingbirds. There was some speculation that this was an Anigozanthos preissii x A. flavidus hybrid (same parentage as 'Regal Claw') but this plant appears to be just a very nice selected form of flavidus.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Anigozanthos 'Orange Cross'.
