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.  The information that is presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they know of cultural information that would aid others in growing  Anigozanthos 'Red Cross'.
