This is Kangaroo Paw (genus Anigozanthos). It is native to Australia, and is the floral emblem of Western Australia.
They are quite beautiful in their own way... The next 2 images were captured in my parents garden on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
The following 2 were captured in the Roma Street Parklands, Brisbane, QLD.
The common name (Kangaroo Paw) derives it name from the paw-like flower
Thanks for stopping by.
