Holly-leaf Tailflower

Holly Leaf Tailflower 1

We noticed these bright yellow flowers with striped throats while walking in Bold Park recently. They are Holly-leaf Tailflowers and grow on tall, spindly shrubs.

There is a similar looking flower called the Yellow Tailflower. It has longer petals on the flowers, and the leaves don’t have the holly-like shape of the Holly-leaf Tailflower (below).
