What colour flowers do you like? What type of plants? I love Hibiscus ones.
The size, flower-stalk height and colour of kangaroo paws flowers varies between the species. Many new forms have also arisen as the result of deliberate hybridisation. The overall colour of the flowers is influenced by fine coloured hairs which cover the flowers and, sometimes, part of the stalk. The flowers appear over spring and summer.
The flowers are pollinated by birds. The long flower-stalks usually rise above the undergrowth and ‘advertise’ the presence of nectar in the flowers. The stalks also provide a perch for visiting birds.
The shape of the flowers and the position of the pollen-bearing anthers is a feature which allows pollen to be deposited on the head of feeding birds. This pollen is transferred from flower to flower as the birds feed. Different species usually deposit pollen on different areas of the birds’ head. This means that pollen from one species is unlikely to be deposited in the flowers of another species.
what sort of plants do you like? I like pretty flowers and unusual plants
My yellow hibiscus that I love. it’s so pretty and the first plant I got.
I’m a flower maniac and love playing in dirt. My favourite thing to do is to sit on my veranda looking at and smelling my plants. Only started gardening a couple of months ago and I love it! My grandmother (Nandy) used to be a gardening maniac.
