Anigozanthos 'Bush Ranger' PP6,478 (Dwarf Kangaroo Paw) - Evergreen perennial that was the result of crossing Anigozanthos humilis with A. flavidus. Foliage reaches about 18" and produces red flowers on branched 2 foot tall stalks covered with red hairs from spring-fall. Plant in full sun and water occasionally to regularly spring through fall. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. This was one of the first of the dwarf Kangaroo paws that had good garden tolerance. Plant Patented in the US in 1988 (PP6,478) has since expired.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Anigozanthos 'Bush Ranger' PP6,478.
