One of the big positives with banksias is that they will flower even when quite young, as we found out this autumn:
|Some banksias can flower within 6 months of planting|
|Hairpin banksia candles starting to develop|
Other less well-known banksia species from the region are silver banksia (B. marginata) and wallum banksia (B. aemula). Both are a good size for gardens, and are equally obliging with flower spikes.
