Proteaceae > Adenanthos detmoldii var. ,

Adenanthos detmoldii, commonly known as Scott River Jugflower or Yellow Jugflower,[1] is a species of shrub in the family Proteaceae. It is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia.

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.[2]


The species prefers well-drained, light soils in full sun to part shade,[3] though, as its natural occurrence in winter-wet areas would suggest, it is hardier to poor drainage than most Adenanthos species.[1] 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.[3]


Pests and diseases


A. detmoldii was retained in A. sect. Eurylaema in Ernest Charles Nelson's 1978 revision of Adenanthos,[4] 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:[2]

A. sect. Eurylaema
A. detmoldii
A. barbiger
A. obovatus
A. ×pamela
A. sect. Adenanthos (29 species, 8 subspecies)

This species frequently hybridises with Adenanthos obovatus; the resulting hybrids are known as Adenanthos ×pamela.[2]
