Adenanthos detmoldii 'Metallica' (Yellow Jugflower) - Medium sized upright growing shrub to 6 feet tall with near equal spread. It has narrow gland-dotted leaves arranged spirally on the upright stems that are at first slightly hairy but glabrous with age. The slightly hairy tubular yellow and orange flowers appear along the stems near the branch tips from mid winter until late spring. Plant in full coastal sun to dappled shade inland in medium to well-drained soils and irrigate occasionally. This species is regarded as being at risk in the wild. It is known to occur in a very restricted area in damp sandy flats at the southern tip of Western Australia. It is profusely flowering and attractive to nectar feeding birds. This species was described by Baron von Mueller, a German born Australian government botanist and Director of the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. He named this plant after his good friend William Detmold.  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Adenanthos detmoldii 'Metallica'.
