Anigozanthus Bush Eclipse
Anigozanthus fuliginosa 'Bush Eclipse'
Native to Western Australia, Kangaroo paws make excellent garden and patio subjects and wonderful cutflowers for a bold indoor statement. Bush Eclipse flowers later in summer and spot flowers almost year round, certainly to its own timetable. It has a high natural disease tolerance and needs little water - summer droughts eat dust!

A selected form of the unique "black kangaroo paw" with stunning black flowers opening to reveal a contrasting light green underside.

Uses: Wonderful cutflower and great back-of-border show stopper.
Position: Plant in a well-aired and sunny position and a coarse and well-drained soil - it does not like wet feet!
Care: Remove spent flower heads to prolong flowering. An annual tidy and a light dressing of low-phosphorus slow-release fertiliser in autumn is beneficial.
