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.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated 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 'Orange Cross'.
