Floral Friday ~ Kangaroo Paw


Native to Australia, kangaroo paws are certainly a unique flower.  Fuzzy, velvety paw-shaped flowers are a long lasting addition to your floral creations.

The genus name, Anigozanthos, is derived from the Greek anises,meaning unequal, and anthos, meaning flower, referring to the unbalanced flower shape.
