flora-Australia-7: Id pl.-A shrub in the front yard of the cottage garden,


I got the id of the same- Anigozanthus rufus or known as Kangaroo paw, F-Haemodoraceae.
It is bird attracting flower, endemic to the south west of western Australia.
flower resembles kangaroo paw.


Kangaroo paw… what an apt name..
and strange looking


A beautiful flower indeed.
I remember observing similar plant in San Francisco bot. garden in Australia section. Will share it in a separate thread.


It can be Anigozanthos flavidus or some cultivar of Anigozanthos also, as per POWO 1 (Anigozanthos flavidus Redouté) and POWO 2 (Anigozanthos rufus Labill.).
I tried but could not find the difference between Anigozanthos flavidus and A.rufus.
