Blandfordia grandiflora is naturally found in swampy areas from the coast of Sydney up to Brisbane. It’s commonly known as Christmas Bells because it tends to flower around Christmas time (November to March), although has been known to occasionally flower at other times of the year. The plant is in the family Blandfordiaceae.The leaves are about 70cm long and strap-like. The flowers are bell-shaped with yellow tips, and can range from being red to entirely yellow in colour. The flowers reach above the foliage on stalks that are usually about 80cm high, but can sometimes be up to 175cm tall. The inflorescence (group of flowers) can be 2 to 20 flowered, but is usually about 4 flowered. The flowers are large and can be picked and kept as cut flowers for up to week. Additionally, the flowers can sometimes attract native birds to your garden, and the seed heads are not unappealing.
