What's flowering in the park

Isopogon anethifolius

Narrow-leafed Drumsticks

Family: Proteaceae

Isopogon anethifolius can grow up to 3 m tall in sheltered forest conditions, but is also found as a smaller shrub in heathland.

The leaves of Isopogon anethifolius distinguish it from other varieties. They are rigid, 4 -16 cm long, with tough divided segments, very fine narrow.

Clusters of small yellow flowers are crowded in a spiral formation into a squat cone-shaped flower head. When the flowers of Isopogon anethifolius die the cone is a head of tiny hairy nuts.

Main flowering time is September - November, but Isopogon anethifolius can spot flower most of the year.
