Kan­ga­roo paw

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

It’s easy to see why the strik­ing red and green kan­ga­roo paw is the flo­ral em­blem of Western Aus­tralia. Found in south­west­ern WA, this an­nual shrub sports bright red flower stalks, bear­ing green flow­ers that fan out in a small arc. Grow­ing on coastal plains from north of Ger­ald­ton to Al­bany, the species is pro­tected and does not nat­u­rally grow any­where else in the world.
