Artist's Description

Red Kangaroo Paw, native wildflower, (Anigozanthos rufus) blossoming in the bush, early Spring, Western Australia. Canon 5D Mark II, Sigma 105mm Macro. CLICK ON PIC TO VIEW LARGE.

“Big Red” is a strappy-leaved clumping plant with flowering stems reaching 1.5-2m tall. Leaves arise from an underground stem, known as a rhizome, and flowers occur in terminal clusters on stems arising from the base of the leaves. Flowers, which appear over spring and summer, are deep red in colour and have no fragrance, but have a wool-like covering and a kangaroo paw-like shape, hence their common name. Flowers are pollinated by birds or small nectar-feeding marsupials transferring pollen between
different plants during feeding.
