Banksia ‘Yellow Wing’


A medium rounded shrub with fine dense foliage. The flower spikes are held well above the foliage as beacons for a range of honey-eating birds, and parrots love their seed. Particularly suitable for hedging, screening or specimen plantings; cut flowers last well in water, may also be dried. Prune after flowering to encourage a more dense habit. . Moderately fast growing and hardy in cool temperate to subtropical and semi arid climates. Good in full sun or light shade in moist clays, red loams or sandy soils, neutral to acid pH. Frost hardy.
