ACRA 1087

ACRA accepted

ORIGIN: Hakea ‘Kincora’ is a selection grown since 2001 by Michael O’Brien on the property Kincora, Halliwells Road, Allansford, Victoria. Purported to be of hybrid origin, there is evidence that Hakea laurina or Hakea petiolaris may have been involved. The cultivar registration application was received by the Authority on 27 May 2004. The applicant was Michael O’Brien.

DESCRIPTION: Hakea ‘Kincora’ grows into an erect shrub 2 m tall by 2 m across. Branches have an erect, arching habit. Leaves are linear, 95mm long by 12mm wide, acuminate. Racemes are globular, approximately 50mm by 50mm in size, clustered along the stems, and profuse. Styles are creamy white, perianth are bright pink. Fruit have not been observed. The main flowering period is from May to July.

DIAGNOSIS: Hakea ‘Kincora’ is similar to Hakea ‘Burrendong Beauty’ but can be distinguished by its erect habit, and linear leaves.

CULTIVATION: Hakea ‘Kincora’ is reported to have some tolerance to drought. Frost hardiness is not known.
