Mangles Kangaroo Paw 澳大利亞名花

Anigozanthos manglesii, also commonly known as Red and Green Kangaroo Paw. I found it just few steps from the place I live. It surprised me and I know it won't last for long.  Hope to see them grow again next winter. The species is not threatened, but is protected under state legislation. A license is required for their collection.

也許它的樣子有點像袋鼠的爪,所以叫袋鼠爪花。屬於多年生草本植物,是澳大利亞特產的珍貴花卉哦!我記得這是在進入冬季的時候抓的照片,所以現在它應該已經消失了。這花是受澳大利亞國家法律保護的花,所以路邊的野花最好不要亂亂摘!
