Fine-leaved very tall winter-flowering native. An excellent screen plant, the heathery foliage is frost and salt-spray tolerant. Classic bush flowers and lovely seedheads too for you and the birds. Needs an acid soil for best results.

We love heath banksia for its richly coloured flowers, tolerance of a wide range of growing conditions

Banksia ericifolia - heath banksia

APPEARANCE : Native tree with orange (though variable in colour) cylindrical flowers in autumn and winter.  The foliage is fine, heather-like, hence its common name. It's variability in size and flower colour has led to it being the parent plant of many popular banksia cultivars.
ORIGIN :Native to NSW Central Coast
USE FOR :  This adaptable Banksia forms an excellent screen plant or windbreak in gardens around Australia. Birds adore these plants and kept busy for ages.  Seed pods are decorative, as are the flowers.
PLANTING: Plant in a well draining, neutral to slightly acid pH, sandy to sandy loam soil. Grows in the wild in woodland and sometimes partly swampy areas. Tolerates cold, humidity, salt spray
CARE:Feed with a slow release native fertiliser during spring - Banksia ericifolia is phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%. Should survive temperatures down to -6C once established
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 5m H x 3m 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
