Yellow Glow at Larnach

These lovely yellow flowers caught my attention on recent visits to Larnach and I like the fresh green foliage too. I’ve now had a response from Larnach to my email requesting ID for this plant. Fiona Eadie, Head Gardener, has advised me that it is Bulbinella setosa (from South Africa). Larnach Castle Garden, Dunedin, New Zealand.

In the photo above, the tall skinny tree is a native Pseudopanex species (this type is commonly called Lancewood).

    1. Thank you! I like the 2nd shot too. Its the area you come into when entering the Castle garden from the main carpark (after walking through a dark bush area to get there).
