Red Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos rufus)

Botanical Information:

Family: Haemodoraceae>
Genus: Anigozanthos
Species: rufus

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
rufus is from Latin: red. The flower colour

Anigozanthos rufus is the type species collected and described by Labillardière in 1792, and is the only Kangaroo Paw in the Esperance region of Western Australia.

Flowers are long lasting and very attractive to nectar-feeding birds. Flowers appear from spring to mid summer and are borne on 1m (3 feet) high stems.

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