Anigozanthos 'Red Cross' (Red Kangaroo Paw) - A vigorous hybrid between A. rufus and A. flavidus, has spectacular, tall (4-5 ft.), multi-branched stems with rich burgundy coloration on both flowers and stems. The flowers open to reveal a green interior. A good strong grower, it blooms a little later than A. 'Dwarf Delight' (which we no longer grow) and continues on into late summer. The darkest of the Red Kangaroo Paws that we grow.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Anigozanthos 'Red Cross'.
