Anigozanthos is commonly known as “kangaroo paw” because of the shape of its flowers. It is a rhizomatous perennial plant hailing from Austrialia. It prefers sunny or semi-shaded places; these plants do not fear the cold and they can withstand periods of intense cold. Sometimes during the winter it loses the aerial part which they grow back in spring. A watery lymph is stored in the roots of the plant, which allows it to withstand long periods of drought without problems.
