Great Drought Tolerant Plant: Kangaroo Paw

Borrowed from our friends down under, the Kangaroo Paw is becoming a staple of Southwest gardens. And rightly so, the drought tolerant, fuzzy pawed plant is a perfect fit for our scorching summers and lack of water...

The blooms range in color from bright yellow to a deep burgundy with oranges and reds in between. The ones pictures are the standard Kangaroo Paw that grow quite tall, but you can find dwarf or miniature versions that will stay closer to the ground. These also make excellent cut flowers since they can last a long time (and look great dried too!).
