Kakabeak (Native)

Kakabeak (Native)

Named for its curious red spring flowers, that resemble the beak of New Zealand native parrot, the kaka, kakabeak makes a great filler plant and creates a wonderful burst of seasonal colour.



When to sow

Spring & summer


  • Mass planting
  • Seasonal colour
  • Filler plant


Fill a seed tray with Yates Black MagicĀ® Seed Raising Mix. Press mix firmly into tray; water and allow to drain. Sow seed and cover lightly with seed raising mix. Place tray in a warm, shady, sheltered place and mist with water, as required, to keep moist (not wet).


Once seedlings are 3-5cm high, transplant into small individual pots. Grow on until a root ball establishes and transplant into the garden or containers.


Soak seeds overnight in warm water to soften seed coat and grow in a greenhouse to enhance germination. Apply Yates BlitzemĀ® to protect young seedlings from slugs and snails.
