Name: Anigozanthos ‘Kanga Pink’ aka Dwarf Pink Kangaroo Paw
Type of Plant: This is an evergreen perennial in zones 9-11, but a long-flowering container plant in colder areas. Drought tolerant and sun loving.
Why I Love This Plant: Not only does this flower for a long time, the fuzzy stalks can also be cut for bouquets. It would be a great container plant for someone who forgets to water, since kangaroo paws are drought tolerant and actually prefer to go a bit dry in between soakings.
A Word to the Wise: Don’t let the plant go for more than 10 days without watering…there’s only so much drought that one container plant can stand!
