Anigozanthos Kings Park Federation Flame
PBR Name: Kings Park Federation Flame
A stunning variety chosen as Western Australia's floral emblem to celebrate Australia's Centenary of Federation. Strong, upright, white-haired stems hold vivid orange flowers in abundance and definitely makes this a showpiece in any garden setting. Dynamite when planted in multiples! Mature plants produce multi-branches flowering stems with sensational colour that lasts from spring through to late summer.
Height to 1m
Width to 80cm
Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. If drainage is poor, such as in most clay soils, build up your garden bed to provide good drainage. Remove spent flowers at their base to encourage new flowers. Older plants will benefit by the annual removal of any damaged leaves. Protect from heavy frost.
Anigozanthos are very drought hardy, however, extra irrigation at the time of flower bud formation will benefit flowering performance. It’s best to keep the plant moist in dry conditions to encourage new growth.
Anigozanthos are not especially phosphorus sensitive, so you needn’t necessarily have to use a native plant fertiliser. Feed in autumn and spring with a small amount of controlled release fertiliser around the base of the plant to promote good plant health.
Cut old flowering stems back to their base to tidy up the plant and encourage repeat flowering. You can cut the whole plant back to just above ground level. New shoots will appear from underground rhizomes.
Pests and Diseases
Snails and slugs are the most common pest. See your plant stockist for products to control this problem. Anigozanthos can be affected by rust or ink spot disease. The latter can be caused by pests which damage plant tissue. Anigozanthos naturally exude an inky fluid in response. Remove any badly affected leaves.
