Louise has a Green Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos viridus) plant in her garden. The flowers grow in compact heads of up to 15. They are light green, long tubes, covered with dense hairs and open at the tip with six claw-like structures. The plant’s name "Kangaroo Paw" is derived from this paw formation.
