Kangaroo paw is a beautiful warm-weather perennial that shows off brightly colored, velvety flowers. In addition to being beautiful, kangaroo paw is an excellent, long-lasting cut flower and also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. The plant's fantastic heat tolerance makes it a top pick for containers on sunny decks and patios.

It’s put on a lot of new growth thanks to the feed and watering. We are noticing that the growth is now slowing down because it would have used up all the fertiliser that we gave it. Going to now give it a small dose of extra food. However if there’s any risk of frost in the near future hold off on fertilising your paw. Otherwise the soft new growth would be in danger of burning.
