The classic Australian Native tree with rich lime to yellow Banksia flowers in autumn and winter.

Nectar feeding birds are attracted to the bottlebrush shaped flowers. Seed pods are decorative, long lasting and are ideal used indoors in floral arrangements.
Prune as required after flowering to maintain tidy growth and fertilise using a slow release native fertilser yearly.
Plant in a well drained soil in a sunny location.
Average 5 -10 m in garden settings, up to 25 metres naturally.
