Kangaroo paws have some of the most distinctive flowers in the botanical world with clusters of fuzzy tubular flowers that look like a kangaroo's paw and that bloom for months! 'Bush Nugget' has golden yellow flowers on red stems to two feet above iris-like mid-green foliage. Though tolerant of some freezing it would be safest to bring plants inside to a greenhouse or as a houseplant in winter.
