Banksia integrifolia ‘Roller Coaster’

A vigorous cascading ground cover suitable for banks, rockeries, and the borders of shrubberies. Very tough, especially for coastal areas with sandy soil. Banksias are phosphorus sensitive, so a good native fertiliser is best when it comes to feeding time. This is a great habitat plant, birds and insects feed on the nectar rich flowers and the dense low foliage provides cover for small to medium lizards like skinks and bluetongues.
