Availabilty: In Stock
Evergreen to 2m. Long spikes of orange flowers during cooler months. Unusual gnarly growth habit - bird attracting, frost & wind tolerant full sun - hardy. The flowers are sought after for their ability to be long lasting in arrangements and bird attracting properties. Unusual gnarly growth habit makes Banksias a favourite in most garden settings.
This is a type of Australian "Bush Food" or "Bush Tucker". The flowers of Banksia varieties contain sweet nectar, and you can suck the nectar out of the flower, or soak the flowers in water to make a sweet drink.
