Re-stock: in 8-12 weeks

Robust native Australian banksia with green-cream brushes during spring and autumn. Suited to seaside gardens - where it will grow as a shrub - and well drained soil. Grows naturally on the coast from TAS to QLD, so very adaptable as to climate, and mature size will vary accordingly.


We love saw leaf banksia for its climate adaptability, pale flowers, long flowering season
