|Lore||Anigozanthos is an Australian native species prized for its tall stalks of unique velvety blooms covered by fine, vibrantly colored hairs, on a rhizomatous plant with a fan-like cluster of stiff blade-like foliage, similar to an iris. A long-lasting cut flower that is highly prized within the cut flower industry worldwide, particularly in The United States, Japan, and Israel. They adapt easily to Mediterranean-like climates with warm, dry summers. They are relatively short-lived plants but many of today's hybrids are longer-lived than their parent plants.|
