The shape is a bit tough and stubborn from the Anigozanthos. This flower is not characterized by excessively blooming flowers or sweet perfume. No, De Anigozanthos does it very differently. She has stems that are branched and without leaves, on which her small tubes grow and these have small hairs and are pink, yellow, red or orange. A greenish-yellow flower with six petals then grows from the end of these tubes. They also call this from Australia Kangaroo paw because of the resemblance to a kangaroo paw.
In the name of this Anigozanthos come the Greek words anises which means uneven and anthos which means flower. A clear reference to the shape of the flowers. The Anigozanthos is a symbol of individuality and is the flower emblem of Western Australia.
This flower mainly grows in southwestern Australia, and that too in a very dry area. In the nineteenth century, the Anigozanthos in seed form traveled by boat to France. Empress Joséphine then grew these plants in her famous greenhouses and garden of the Imperial Palace, where it was discovered that the Anigozanthos also works well as a cut flower.
