    They are such beautiful plants! I am trying to grow some in my garden, but, unfortunately, they don’t seem to be very happy in Queensland climate. At least, I managed to take a few nice photos of kangaroo paws, one of them is going to be the cover for my Native Plants calendar for the next year. :)

  • Mine are in bloom in the garden, we are by the coast and in a lot of sand. They suffered badly last year with the heat though.
