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 on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Anigozanthos 'Red Cross'.
