Banksia burdettii – Burdett’s Banksia

The stunning flower heads that are grey in bud and orange when they open are borne on a rounded bushy medium sized shrub. Use it as a feature shrub and enjoy cut flowers for indoor decoration as well. It is a very low maintenance plant. Like all banksias, it is phosphorus sensitive, so a good native fertiliser is best when it comes to feeding time.
