What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Red Kangaroo Paw
Distinguishing traits. Showy flowers are the defining features of this otherwise relatively commonplace perennial. And while I normally wouldn’t advocate a plant based solely on its blooms, not many can offer the brilliant spectacle of color and exceptional form that ‘Red Cross’ offers from spring through fall.
5. Use Focal-Point FlowersSure, you can grab attention with impatiens and geraniums, but other more unexpected specimens abound. One possibility: kangaroo paw (Anigozanthos ‘Red Cross’).

Kangaroo paw is seen in gardens everywhere, and for good reason. It's easy to grow, versatile, and has exceptionally attractive flowers. Choose red kangaroo paw (Anigozanthos ‘Red Cross’) for added benefits of size, cold hardiness, and spectacular red blooms. Plant in fall to give the plant time to get established before spring's bloom time and the heat of summer. While winter may be on the horizon and this year's bloom time waning, treasure this time knowing the brilliant buds will return again.
