From Anigozanthos on Wednesday 7th of April 2021 05:03:40 PM PDT
Anigozanthos flavidus is a branched tall species and one of the most widely cultivated since it is disease resistant and the easiest to grow in climates with humid summers and can be grown in sun or light shade. It also is tolerant of various kinds of soil. It grows to three meters and has yellow, green, brown, or red flowers. The typical color is pale greenish yellow, but attractive color forms have been selected. It has been one of the main species used in creating hybrids because of its hardiness and disease resistance. Flowering occurs late spring to summer. The photos below were taken near Walpole in Western Australia September 2007 by Mary Sue Ittner.
