We're stoked to get this unusual banksia in store. Hairpin banksias are gorgeous with their rich-coloured flowers; Black Magic takes that up a notch with tall cylinders of golden honey, each tipped with jet black. A dramatic addition to your winter wildlife garden.

Banksia spinulosa ssp cunninghamii 'Black Magic'

DESCRIPTION: Australian native banksia from all along the Great Dividing Range, with large gold and black flowers autumn-winter which stay on the plant. Slender foliage.
USE IN: Wildlife gardens - honeyeaters love the nectar; mixed beds, native gardens, feature planting. Forms a good low screen for informal hedging. Will even grow under gum trees.
LOCATION:  Plant in well drained soil on the acid side if possible, in sun or dappled shade. Tolerates clay and sandy soils and salt spray in coastal gardens. Will come through a light frost; very heat tolerant.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Lightly prune after flowering to promote more flowers during the next flowering season. Feed with a slow release native fertiliser during spring - Banksia are phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1.5 - 2 m H x 1.5 - 2 m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide
