Anigozanthos 'Landscape Tall Red' (Landscape Tall Red Kangaroo Paw) - Upright perennial plant with 2-3 feet tall sword-like foliage and 6 to 7 foot tall red stem wands holding rose red colored flowers 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 that is taller than most other cultivars. As will other kangaroo paws this one is great for attracting hummingbirds. This introduction is 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 first 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". We introduced the first of this series, Anigozanthos 'Landscape Lilac', in 2017 and this plant under the name 'Landscape Pink' in 2020 but all who see it say the same thing, that the color is actually to deep to be called pink and so in 2021 we changed the name to 'Landscape Tall Red' to better described its color and its tall flower stems. We do have several more of Angus's Landscape Series to introduce and these all should be among the most durable and long living of the cultivated kangaroo paws for California gardens.  Information displayed on this page about  Anigozanthos 'Landscape Tall Red' is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
