Banksia Spinulosa

The Banksia Spinulosa sometimes known as Hairpin Banksia, is native to the three eastern States of Australia, the flower colour has variations from brown to red, orange and gold. It is also much loved by the birds.

The flower spikes range from 10-20 cm in length. The individual flowers open from the top of the spike and provide a long flowering period from autumn through the winter to spring when the three stages of cone development can be observed – bud, flower spike and seed capsule.

We have seen them in Centennial Park, Maroubra and The Blue Mountains, they are stunning flowers.
