Banksia ‘Bush Candles’ is a great low maintenance dwarf shrub that flowers its head off from autumn to winter, providing a visual delight and a great source of nectar for visiting birds. A naturally dense grower, forming a wide low mound that cover the ground. It is a vigorous grower. The flowers are golden spikes with lovely contrasting brown stamens, and can be used for cut flowers. Tolerant of frost and dry spells, and is also great for coastal gardens. Grows in sun to part shade and is adaptable to most soils types. Also good for container growing. Banksias are phosphorus sensitive, so a good native fertiliser is best when it comes to feeding time.
