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.  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 'Golden Tango'.
