This video introduces one of the largest flowering of all the banksias, and one that is fabulous for the garden in temperate regions that are free of heavy frost. It is reputedly a hybrid between the hairpin banksia (B. spinulosa) and the heath-leafed banksia (B ericifolia) and grows into a fairly dense medium sized shrub that is ideal as a bird attracting plant that works well as an informal screen plant. It grows to several metres in height and should be fed with a low phosphorus fertiliser and may need extra iron such as iron chelates if you notice any yellowing in the growing tips.
