Yellow Kangaroo Paw _DSC8235

Kangaroo paws belong to the genus Anigozanthos, which has 11 species.
Anigozanthos occur naturally only in the southwest of Western Australia. They occur in a variety of habitats and soil types.
The colour and form of kangaroo paws make them one of the most rewarding Australian native plants for the home garden. Kangaroo paws are also very good cut flowers. They are exported to many parts of the globe and are grown commercially in the USA, Israel and Japan.

Love your close up.

Wonderful focus, and I enjoyed your informative narrative. I've never seen these, but they look like they would be beautiful in a cut flower arrangement.
