Hello,

Description:

Height: low growing grass; 4-ish foot high flower stems

Foliage: low growing grassy

Light: sun loving; the flower stems lean toward the light

Flower: orange red "pod" from which a white & yellow flower emerge.

Southern California. Planted at a school. What is this? I'd like to buy a few.

Sorry, I'm trying to upload a pic and add an optional, but it will only do an optional. So here's a direct link showing the whole plant:

What you have there is an Australian native plant called Anigozanthos commonly called Kangaroo Paw.
