All types of Kangaroo Paws

14 11 2010

There’s nothing like springtime to turn those ‘ugly duckling’ strappy nondescript plants in your garden into beautiful swans — in this case, Kangaroo Paws. As we’ve only been in this house since February, I didn’t know what sort of Kangaroo Paws we had. I had recognised some of the ugly strappy plants as being ‘roo paws, but until they flowered recently, I had no idea how many varieties had been planted by the previ0us owners. Kangaroo Paws come in all sorts of colours (yellow, orange, red, red and green, green, and I think I’ve seen some black ones in the front garden), and we seem to have most of them!

Here are a few just from ONE of our back garden beds.
