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.  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 'Orange Cross'.
