Anigozanthos 'Landscape Lilac' (Lilac Kangaroo Paw) - Upright perennial plant with 2-3 feet tall sword-like foliage and 5-6 feet tall wands of lavender pink flowers on gray pink stems. Plant in a sunny and open position in the garden in well-drained soils. Irrigate regularly and fertilize in spring (not heavily and keep phosphorus on the low side). Fans only flower once and need to be cleaned out after the flowering period so remove the old leaves down to as low as possible at the end of a season. Care should be exercised that the new emerging fans are not damaged. Treat for snails. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. A great and tough kangaroo paw in a color yet to be seen in any other cultivar. As will other kangaroo paws this one is great for attracting hummingbirds. This is a 2017 introduction from legendary kangaroo paw breeder Angus Stewart, who was also responsible for all of the later Bush Gem hybrids, the series started in the late 1970s by the late Merv Turner. We received the only trail material of this plant sent into to the US in late 2015 along with several other new cultivars that are part of Angus's "Landscape Series". In 2019 we introduced Anigozanthos 'Landscape Pink' and we have several more yet to come. These plants should be among the most durable and long living of the cultivated kangaroo paws for California gardens.  Information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips would aid others in growing Anigozanthos 'Landscape Lilac'.
