Banksia robur - swamp banksia

DESCRIPTION: Classic Australian native banksia with large oval leaves and gold nectar-filled flowers in autumn and winter. Rust-coloured new leaves complement the flower.
USES: Looks good in grouped plantings. Excellent screen plant, able to tolerate frost and salt spray. Birds adore these plants and are kept busy for ages.  Seed pods are decorative as are the flowers. 
PLANTING: Plant in a well drain sandy to sandy loam soil but not alkaline.  Will tolerate moist soil in full sun.
CARE: Prune as required to maintain compact growth. 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%.. Banksia robur is less sensitive than other species.
