This painting depicts the New Zealand Kakabeak. The Kakabeak is named for its beautiful red flowers, which hang in clusters and are shaped like a kaka's beak (a kaka is a large New Zealand parrot). There are two species of the plant, both unique to New Zealand and both seriously threatened with extinction in the wild. In the garden it is a different story; kakabeak has long been popular as a garden plant because of its beautiful flowers and edible seedpods. However, its future is not ensured by cultivation as most cultivated stock is of unknown horticultural origin.
