Yesterday afternoon (Sunday 22 October) we visited Larnach Castle Garden for afternoon tea and also had a quick look around the garden, despite the wet weather. I didn’t have my cellphone but asked Nigel to take photos of the white kakabeak which was laden with flowers and blooming immediately above blue Lithodora. They complemented each other very well.
For either of these photos – click on the photo to enlarge
Clianthus puniceus has red flowers. Kakabeak is a very beautiful native flowering shrub and my previous post The Lovely Clianthus, New Zealand has photos of the red kakabeak.
There are good close-up photos of the white kakabeak at TERRAIN.
