A delightful smaller growing Banksia with tiny fine leaves and large bright flowers from autumn through winter. The flowers start as yellow buds and age through to a darker orange-red, and are loved by nectar feeding birds and other wildlife. It grows from 1 to 2 metres tall and wide, is naturally dense growing but can be encouraged to be even more compact if pruned after flowering finishes. Very useful for informal hedging, massed planting or on its own to attract bird life to the garden. Needs full sun for best flowering and good drainage. In heavier soils, it is good to create raised beds for Bird Song or use in containers.
