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 our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Adenanthos detmoldii 'Metallica'.
