Broad-leaved Drumsticks is a small to medium shrub producing conspicuous clusters of globular yellow flower heads in spring and summer. The globular or barrel-shaped seed pods give rise to their common name of "Drumsticks". The leaves are divided into many linear segments and grow to 10cm long. The flower clusters are about 35mm across. Isopogon anemonifolius makes an attractive garden species and was one of the first Australian plants cultivated in Europe in the late 18th century. Isopogon is a genus containing about thirty five species, all of which are found only in southern half of Australia.
