Anigozanthos Ruby Velvet™

Anigozanthos hybrid ‘Ruby Velvet’

Ruby Velvet is an attractive hybrid selection  of landscape-hardy kangaroo paw. From a long-time breeder of kangaroo paw, Ruby Velvet is a compact selection with improved vigor, disease tolerance, frost tolerance and a great display of “kangaroo paw” flowers.  Great for Western landscapes and also a strong performer in other markets as a potted plant. Ruby Velvet is our most diminutive kangaroo paw selection, but while small in size it still packs a punch with its clean, dense foliage and blood red flowers on branched inflorescences which sit above the foliage at approximately 3.5 ft tall.  Breeder: Keith Oliver.

  • Vivid blood-red “kangaroo paw” flowers
  • Dense, strapped-leaf foliage with a dwarf stature
  • Improved resistance to the infamous “ink spot” disease
