Anigozanthos 'Golden Tango' (Golden Kangaroo Paw) - This midsized kangaroo paw has foliage to 2 feet tall with lightly branched 3 foot flower stems bearing masses of dark yellow flowers with reddish orange highlights throughout spring and summer and sporadically the rest of the year. Plant in a sunny and open position in the garden in moderately well-drained soils (this cultivar is more tolerant to heavier 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. Hardy and evergreen to about 25 degrees F and will re-sprout after being knocked down by temperatures as low as 20 F. 'Golden Tango' is a vegetative sport of the popular 'Bush Tango' that was discovered in or 'Bush Tango' crops. The parent plant has proven to be a great garden plant and nice for flower arrangements and likely this sport will also be good for these purposes. 'Bush Tango' itself is a complex hybrid created by hybridizer Angus Stewart.
