SpecificationsAnigozanthos 'Yellow Gem' is a beautiful clumping WA native plant with leaves 250 mm long and clusters of beautiful bright yellow flowers which are up to 40mm long and supported on reddish stems up to 1.5 meters in height. Flowering occurs over a long period from late spring to mid summer. Yellow Gem can be a highlight in any garden and is also ideal as a long-lasting cut-flower. Preferring sandy loamy soils in well draining positions in the garden makes Yellow Gem ideal in coastal areas, rockeries, native gardens and landscapes, and just as nice as potted specimens. Preferring full sun positions which will encourage more prolific flowering, Yellow Gem will still flower in light shade. A good water supply will also encourage more abundant flowering but Yellow Gem is also a waterwise plant. Little maintenance is required once established. Removal of dead flower spikes will keep your plant looking fresh and tidy and encourage further blooms. Annual fertilizing after flowering using a native fertilizer may be beneficial.
