This 2-3′ x 2-3′ compact evergreen perennial with bluish-green leaves has beautiful rusty-red fuzzy blooms spring and summer. A hummingbird’s true delight! Like all Anigozanthos, Backdraft prefers a full sun location with well draining soil, with little to no phosphorus. The blooms of this variety make an excellent cut-flower due to short stems and long-lasting blooms. For best performance water regularly.
