One of the first native plants I've acquired is a kangaroo paw, named for the obvious similarity. The species (Anigozanthos) is orange and yellow but the hybridizers have been busy creating a whole range of beautiful new shades, ranging from darkest claret red to sparkling silver-white. This one is called 'Bush Spark' and is part of a range of compact varieties designed for the smaller garden. My daughter, Sarah Jane, took the photo.
