Regarded as the hardiest of the kangaroo paws, this species has a vigorous clumping growth habit to 3 ft (1 m) across. With long, dull green leaves, flowering stems 3–5 ft (1–1.5 m) tall, and flowers in green, yellow or soft red tones, this species has proved adaptable to a range of soils and climates. Native to the far southwestern corner of Australia, where it is attractive to native birds, it is used extensively in hybridization programs.
