White Kakabeak

Our native Clianthus puniceus has red flowers and there’s also a white form Clianthus puniceus albus. We found a lovely bush of the white form at Anderson Park, Invercargill on 17 October 2020. Southland, New Zealand.

  1. Fabulous! I didn’t know they come in white as well, although I think I prefer the red ones. I tried to grow one here from seed, but was unsuccessful.
