2020—Kangaroo Paw

Last year I bought some plants that I had read would attract hummingbirds. They’re called Kangaroo Paw. The flowers are fuzzy and red but they didn’t seem to have any way for the hummers to get nectar. The hummers buzzed around the flowers, but they didn’t ever drink from them. A couple of days ago, I noticed a couple of the flowers looked a little different. A few of the red “paws” had finally opened revealing the pistils and stamen and hopefully some nectar.
