Anigozanthus Jump Pink Introduction:

Native to Australia and a compact evergreen, Anigozanthus Jump Pink is a hybrid plant that features sword-like foliage topped with clusters of bright pink velvety blooms. Both its bloom, resembling the paw of a Kangaroo, and its interesting leaves gives this perennial plant a lot of dimension adding variety to wherever it is planted.

Overall this plant’s average height and spread reaches 18-24″ feet wide by 2-3′ feet tall and is best planted in sunny, open locations.
