sensu Fl. Victoria 2:659 (1994) APNI
Threat status:Victoria: rare (r)
Plants resembling A. milleflorum but more robust, to 2 m high, with consistently glaucous, broader (15–30 mm wide) leaves, and flowers with distinctly fimbriate petals. Stamens shorter than perianth segments, filament hairs pale yellow; anthers dark purple to black. Capsule globose, c. 5–6 mm long. Seeds c. 3 mm long. Flowers Dec.
EGU, HSF. Apparently endemic to Victoria. Currently known only from the upper Macalister, Tambo and Snowy River areas where occurring in rocky situations (often in clefts and on ledges of low cliffs) within rather dry woodland.
This entity is mentioned by Brittan (1987) as a robust form of A. milleflorum, but plants of intermediate stature between the two are unknown. Further study is required to nominate an appropriate taxonomic level for the giant form.
