Anigozanthos Landscape Gold
PBR Name: Ramboneer
Certainly one of our favourite kangaroo paws. An impressive plant that provides an outstanding floral display, each stem resembling a bouquet in itself. A profusion of golden yellow flowers appear on multiple, branched red stems. Has strong, upright foliage and good disease tolerance too.
Height to 1.6m
Width to 1.5m
Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. Although more tolerant of clay soils than most paws, if drainage is poor, it’s still best to break down the clay with gypsum or build up the bed to provide good drainage so the plant can perform at its best. Protect from heavy frost.
These Landscapers are very drought hardy and are designed to survive on natural rainfall once established. However, like all plants, they need water, so during extended dry spells, it’s a good idea to give them an occasional soaking.
Anigozanthos are not especially phosphorus sensitive, so you needn’t necessarily have to use a native plant fertiliser. Feed in autumn and spring with controlled release fertiliser to promote good plant health and prolific flowering.
Cut old flowering stems back to their base to tidy up the plant and encourage repeat flowering. You can cut the whole plant back to just above ground level. New shoots will appear from underground rhizomes. Older plants will benefit from the annual removal of any damaged leaves. Use secateurs, a chain saw, even a slasher!
Pests and Diseases
Snails and slugs are the most common pest. See your plant stockist for products to control them. Although Bush Gems Landscapers have been bred to resist or tolerate rust or ink spot disease, it may still be possible to see blackening of the foliage. This is more of an aesthetic problem than something that will hurt the plant, Just remove any badly affected leaves.
