Kakabeak

Regular price $950.00

Fiona’s Oil painting ‘Kakabeak’ celebrates the beauty of this native New Zealand
flower. The kakabeak, or Clianthus, is named for the shape of its red flowers
resembling the beak of the kaka, the New Zealand parrot. The plants are also
known as parrot’s beak, parrot’s bill and lobster claw due to this shape. There
is also a variety of white kakabeak. Red kakabeak, however, although a
popular garden plant, is critically endangered in the wild, with only around 100
plants remaining, due to threats such as possums, deer, goats and snails. It is
classified as Nationally Critical. 240mm x 240mm Framed
