Banksia micrantha

Hailing from south-west Western Australia, this is an attractive small shrubby Banksia with thin leaves, ideal as a groundcover or for a rockery. It produces yellow flowers, occasionally tinged with purple, between summer and autumn and also sporadically.
Can be used as a low windbreak in the garden as well.
Grows quite easily with a well drained soil and part to full sun. Banksias are phosphorus sensitive, so a good native fertiliser is best when it comes to feeding time.
