Ultra-compact, free-flowering kangaroo paws best for use in pots. Bred by the NSW Department of Primary Industries, principally as an export line. It must be noted that Joey Paws are not long-lived varieties and are not a robust garden plant. We suggest you treat them as an annual and enjoy their beautiful display in pots for the many months they are in flower. Joey Paws come in a range of colours - yellows, oranges, reds and greens.
