Banksia integrifolia prostrate – Coastal Banksia

An easy care groundcovering Banksia, growing to just under a metre high and 2 metres wide. With large yellow flowers borne for most of the year- from summer through to winter-they are bird attracting and make good cut flowers. Suits seaside gardens, looks great when mass planted. Drought and frost tolerant once established. Banksias are phosphorus sensitive, so a good native fertiliser is best when it comes to feeding time.
