A truly stunning plant only found within the Geraldton area, the Kangaroo Paw 'Black' is a unusual native plant with extreme colours never normally found within Australia. It is shaped similarly to most of the Anigozanthos kangaroo paws, but they are not the same species plant from them. Its foliage is already unnatural with its blue-green leaves and black stems. However, during the usual spring-summer period they produce some bright lime and black coloured paw-shaped flowers.

 

Use these plants on a border or as ground cover for a small modern garden, or as a potted feature plant in an open patio or balcony.
