Artist's Description

Although it has a glorious vivid red flower, the Mountain Devil is named after the woody “fruit” it bears. The Mountain Devil is mainly found around Sydney and adjoining ranges. It grows up to 2 metres tall and each leaf has a sharp point at its tip. It typically has a cluster of seven flowers – although clusters occasionally have more flowers. Although primarily spring flowering, some flowers are produced throughout the year. The red and green buds are spectacular in their own right, providing an iridescent show as they unfold into flowers which are 50mm tall.
Pollinated by birds, a cluster of flowers usually produces only one Mountain Devil. However it is not uncommon for two, three and even four “devils” to emerge.The Mountain Devil darkens and hardens like the wood it is. The devils are 20mm tall.
