|Adenanthos detmoldii subsp. var.||Scott River jugflower, Yellow jugflower|
It grows as an erect shrub to 4 m (13 ft) in height, with hairy branches and long, narrow leaves up to 80 mm length and about 5 mm wide. The flowers, which appear between August and November, consist of a tubular perianth about 25 mm long, and a style about 40 mm long. The perianth is yellow with an orange throat that becomes brown following pollination.
The species prefers well-drained, light soils in full sun to part shade, though, as its natural occurrence in winter-wet areas would suggest, it is hardier to poor drainage than most Adenanthos species. Naturally a dry-summer plant, it performs unexpectedly well in areas with wet or humid summers, though it is vulnerable to grey mould in such climates. Propagation is by cuttings of semi-mature growth.
Pests and diseases
A. detmoldii was retained in A. sect. Eurylaema in Ernest Charles Nelson's 1978 revision of Adenanthos, and again in his 1995 treatment of the genus for the Flora of Australia series. The placement of A. cuneatus in Nelson's arrangement of Adenanthos may be summarised as follows:
