Banksia cuneata – Matchstick Banksia

The dense growth habit, interesting foliage and unusual flower colour and shape combine to make this an interesting garden plant. Use it as a feature shrub. It is a very low maintenance plant. It has been listed as an endangered species. Like all banksias, it is phosphorus sensitive, so a good native fertiliser is best when it comes to feeding time.
