Blue Kangaroo Paw Painting
Philippa was commissioned by Kings Park Botanic Garden Perth to paint the new blue kangaroo paw hybrid, Anigozanthos ‘Masquerade’
"The main technique used to produce disease tolerant hybrids was a process called recurrent selection. This breeding system selects the top two to four progeny of each cross rated for the particular attribute being selected for, in this case disease tolerance." - Digby Growns, Senior Plant Breeder Kings Park.
These new Kangaroo paw hybrids will be commercially available in 2022.
