Today I visited one of my favorite local wholesale nurseries in preparation for the upcoming garden show.
They had some extremely beautiful vivid orange Anigozanthus “kanga orange” plants growing in 2 gallon size containers.
I bought one as a ‘try out’ plant.
I think I will go back tomorrow and pick a few more out.
I placed the bright orange flowers in the small water feature planter box area but they seemed to over power the area.
So I think I will use the very understated ornamental grass “Carex spicta” and some echiverias.
But just in case I think I will purchase a half dozen of those orange kangaroo paws.
They were incredible !

A couple of Euphorbia wulfinii plants were placed in the red vase for texture.
