Blue Masquerade in Parliament

1 April, 2022

This week the Minister for Environment, the Hon Reece Whitby MLA, spoke in the Parliament about the amazing work of the Kings Park and Botanic Garden Plant Development team and the stunning new Blue Masquerade Kangaroo Paw Hybrid. Not only is it a spectacular new colour, but it has been bred to be resilient and hardy in our climate.

The Friends of Kings Park are very proud to be supporting the work of the Park, and in particular co-fund a research project to identify the unique colour compounds or these new Kangaroo Paw Hybrids and the metabolic pathways that produce them, also funded by the Australian Research Council.
