Banksia spinulosa ‘Schnapper Point’

An attractive low growing selection of Banksia spinulosa, it forms a good compact habit with a little bit of tip pruning after flowering. It grows around a metre high and to 2 metres wide, and flowers for an extended period, from autumn, all through winter through to spring. It is drought tolerant if needed but will do better with a bit of extra care. Feed with a low phosphorus native fertiliser. Likes well drained soil and full sun to light shade.
