I have heard they are not very long living, but could be wrong?
They have been bred to style.
Whereas the natural growing natives are.

I grew Kangaroo Paws successfully for a while. And I agree they are not long living. My plants thrived in a very hot position and the more I watered the more they flowered. It wasn"t until we had a very wet season they developed a black type of mildew & rot. It was then I removed them.

For 15 years a yellow KP has grown happily in sandy soil on the Central Coast NSW. Two years ago I planted Big Reds in a variety of spots and have had moderate success. Second year not as good as the first. I think KP are pretty fussy critters and my nurseryman agrees. I suggest keep trying different varieties and different spots.

I have found the bush gems kangaroo paws grow best in pots. Divide them frequently and cut out old stems and they flower most of the time.
