This distinctive and adaptable banksia has long leathery leaves with a silver underside. It produces large lemon yellow flowers from autumn through to spring, ageing to seed pods which stay on the branch for long periods and look very ornamental. A great windbreak or feature tree in a seaside garden, this plant will grow slowly to eventually attain tree size.
