Anigozanthos 'Landscape Pink' (Landscape Pink Kangaroo Paw) - Upright perennial plant with 2-3 feet tall sword-like foliage and 5-6 feet tall wands of dark reddish pink flowers on red stems - it is so dark that some might call this color maroon or pinkish red. 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 2019 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 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 have several more still to come. These plants should be among the most durable and long living of the cultivated kangaroo paws for California gardens.  The information provided on this webpage is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library and that information that we have found about it on reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations in our nursery of crops of this plant, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information aiding others in growing Anigozanthos 'Landscape Pink'.
