CARE
Care Requires lean, very well-drained, sandy to loamy soil; avoid soggy soils. Water regularly in first growing season to establish root system.

Remove old, faded foliage as needed.
HISTORY
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.
