Kangaroo Paw Red And Green WILDFLOWER
Availability: In stock
Botanical Name: Anigozanthos manglesii
The Red and Green Kangaroo Paws provide superb contrast with their waxy red and green flowers, and are easy to grow and reliable. Plant them en-masse for a unique floral display or combine with differing varieties of Kangaroo Paws for brilliant effect.
We recommend the use of Wildflower Seed Starter Granules for improved germination rates and speed. These granules provide chemicals normally found in bushfire smoke that stimulate native seed germination.
Plant Height: 1m
If ‘Ink Disease’ (black spots on leaves) appears, spray plants with a fungicide and reduce watering. Always water around roots, not into the body of the plant.
We hope you enjoy these Wildflower seeds, just another great example of seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
How To Grow
Sow in warm areas at any time. In colder climates wait until the danger of frost is over. Fill 10cm (4”) pots with a moist quality seed raising mix. Sow one seed flat on its side in each pot and cover with soil mix to the thickness of the seed. It is beneficial to add Mr Fothergill’s Wildflower Seed Starter granules to soil surface. Water, and then keep evenly moist. Cover the pots with clear polythene to preserve moisture and warmth – remove when germination starts. Place in a warm shaded position to germinate fully. Transplant when plants about 20cm (8”) high, spacing plants 8-10 m (26-33’) apart. Use a light application of natural or slow release fertiliser when planting out. Grow in full sun and well-drained sandy soil.
Water in well and then regularly until established. Seedlings emerge 1-3 weeks.
When To Plant
All year round except in hottest or coldest weather. In colder climates, wait until the danger of frost is over.
