Regal Velvet is an attractive hybrid selection which is part of our “Velvet Range” series of landscape-hardy kangaroo paw. From a long-time breeder of kangaroo paw, the Velvet Range varieties were bred using the big and tough Anigozanthos flavidus, crossed with more dwarf and attractive species to yield intermediate-sized selections that have improved vigor, disease tolerance, frost tolerance and a great display of “kangaroo paw” flowers. Great for Western landscapes and also a strong performer in other markets as a potted plant. Regal Velvet, like our Gold Velvet, is aptly suited to general landscape applications because of its dense, full growth habit and clean foliage that requires less pruning to maintain a clean look. The large red and green flowers are borne on branched inflorescences that sit relatively high above the foliage at approximately 4.5 to 5 ft tall. As far as kangaroo paw varieties go, Regal Velvet exhibits decent frost tolerance and will survive in full sun, in well drained positions.
