Kangaroo Paws: LadyD Books

Kangaroo paws grow around my pond. They are very low maintenance, like a perennial and drought-tolerant. I have found kangaroo paws in a variety of colors. However, today's meme is all about yellow!

Wikipedia says:

Kangaroo paw is a common name for a number of species, in two genera of the family Haemodoraceae, that are endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. These perennial plants are noted for their unique bird attracting flowers. The tubular flowers are coated with dense hairs and open at the apex with six claw-like structures: from this paw formation the common name "Kangaroo Paw" is derived.

Are Kangaroo Paw's found in your landscaped areas?
