A customer of ours from the N. Oregon Coast (Gearheart) brought us divisions of the large green flowered Kangaroo Paw species. It had thrived in her garden there for 20 years and formed a huge patch. She had divisions a plenty. We’ve since found that it isn’t quite hardy inland but its still a durable cool long blooming plant. Easy container plant that you can protect if the temperature threatens to drop below 20ºF. In summer they send up 4′ spike with their green curiously fuzzy paw shaped flowers. They remain in bloom for weeks. Full sun and fertile well drained soil with regular water. Easy to divide. Multiples quickly.
