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
