A declared rare species in W.A.
Lambertia rariflora appears to be most closely related to L. multiflora and L. uniflora. The inconspicuous green flowers of subsp. rariflora contrast with those of other Lambertia spp. which are brightly coloured yellow, red, orange or pink. There are 2 geographically distinct subspecies.
Flowers green; leaves with rounded apices with or without a mucro, rarely attenuate subsp. rariflora
Flowers yellow; leaves mostly attenuate and mucronate, rarely rounded subsp. lutea
