Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos 'Yellow Gem')

Botanical Information:

Family: Haemodoraceae>
Genus: Anigozanthos
Hybrid: Anigozanthos flavidus × Anigozanthos pulcherrimus

Meaning of name:
The genus Anigozanthos was first named by the French botanist Jacques Labillardière in his book Relation du Voyage à la Recherche de la Pérouse (Voyage in search of La Pérouse), published in 1800 following a trip to southwestern Australia in 1792. Unfortunately he didn’t record why he chose this name, but there are two theories as to its origin:
Anigozanthos is from Greek: either anisos, unequal + anthos, flower, or anoigo, to open + anthos, flower. The first would be a reference to the floral extremities dividing into six unequal parts, while the second would be a reference to the habit of the flower to open widely, flaring almost to the blossom’s base
flavidus is from Latin: yellow. The flower colour
pulcherrimus is from Latin: pulcher, handsome + the superlative form. Very handsome

‘Yellow Gem’ is a hybrid combining the hardy qualities of Anigozanthos flavidus with the vivid yellow of Anigozanthos pulcherrimus (Golden Kangaroo Paw). The flowers are 40mm (1.6 inches) long and appear in clusters atop 1.5m (5 feet) high stems. Flowering is from late spring to mid summer.

This print features in the Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos) diptych collection.
