Clianthus Kaka King

Product Description

Clianthus Kaka King is one of our more flamboyant natives, taking its common name from the large pendulous clusters of bright red flowers, reminiscent of a native parrots (kaka) beak, which are carried during spring. Native to northern areas, it is now rare in the wild. The shrub grows up to about 2m tall and has a rather sprawling form, making it suitable to espalier or train as a climber. The arching branches have fine fern-like light green leaves that slugs and snails find attractive. It can also be attacked by a leaf miner insect. Protection from heavy frosts is necessary. Kaka beak can be relatively short lived but is easily propagated by seed or cuttings.
