The Kangaroo Paw is a plant native to Wester Australia. But these plants are not in Western Australia, but in my garden! Some people say that they have had difficulty with this plant - but all I can say is that they gave us a magnificent display. We must have had the perfect balance between occasional care and general neglect!
Most of the "red" you can see are the flowers buds - the flowers them selves are much smaller, and less colourful. This plant is an Anigozanthos flaviuds for all you keen gardeners.
You can find more shots at Macro Monday.
Enjoy the close ups.
