Anigozanthos hybrid 

PBR Name: Rampaging Roy Slaven

As soon as Rampaging Roy Slaven plants made their way into retail stores, Ramm Botanicals began donating 10c to Aspect for every plant sold in Australia! Thank you for your help in supporting  Aspect's amazing work.

John Doyle, alias Rampaging Roy Slaven, in his capacity as patron of Aspect, lent his name to this fund-raising plant that's helped a great cause. Over $60,000 was raised to fund autistic children and their families. Ten cents from every plant sold was donated to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect). The plant itself is a prolific, repeat flowering paw that features masses of large orange/red flowers held on strong stems.

Height to 1m

Width to 50cm

Planting
Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. Although more tolerant of clay soils than most paws, if drainage is poor, it’s still best to break down the clay with gypsum or build up the bed to provide good drainage so the plant can perform at its best. Protect from heavy frost.
Watering
These Landscapers are very drought hardy and are designed to survive on natural rainfall once established. However, like all plants, they need water, so during extended dry spells, it’s a good idea to give them an occasional soaking.
Fertiliser
Anigozanthos are not especially phosphorus sensitive, so you needn’t necessarily have to use a native plant fertiliser. Feed in autumn and spring with controlled release fertiliser to promote good plant health and prolific flowering.
Pruning
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. Older plants will benefit from the annual removal of any damaged leaves. Use secateurs, a chain saw, even a slasher!
Pests and Diseases
Snails and slugs are the most common pest. See your plant stockist for products to control them. Although Bush Gems Landscapers have been bred to resist or tolerate rust or ink spot disease, it may still be possible to see blackening of the foliage. This is more of an aesthetic problem than something that will hurt the plant, Just remove any badly affected leaves.
