Kangaroo paw beds

Kangaroo paw beds, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

The Kangaroo Paw is the floral emblem of Western Australia and in Kings Park they have large beds of them and at this time of the year they are at their most vibrant best.

Kings Park botanic garden is, in my opinion, the very best botanic garden of the many I have seen. Of course it has a huge variety of native plants to display but it presents them so well and all are labelled with excellent information boards around the park. It brings together all the many plants and arranges them in sections representing the different geographic areas of Western Australia.

If you come to Perth you must not miss a visit to Kings Park.

  1. I grow these!!! A little tricky here……


    • Yes I have grown them over here, or tried to, you almost have to treat them like annuals as they get a bad fungus disease because of our humidity
