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.
