SpecificationsThis lovely Australian native is salt tolerant so very suitable to coastal areas and at maturity forms a gnarled tree. The flowers from this attractive tree are dense, fuzzy spikes or heads of tightly packed small flowers, striking due to their lime-green color which fades to a soft yellow and then forming cylindrical spikes about 10 cm long from late summer to early winter. The flowers are also rich in nectar and bird-attracting, and are frequently used in flower arranging. The flowers can also be dried. The distinctive silver-backed dull green leaves on the young plant are toothed or spiked but this feature disappears quite early. The banksia is very drought tolerant waterwise plant and in cultivation can grow very rapidly, especially when planted in well drained deep sandy soil with low levels of major nutrients, especially phosphates. Best grown in full sun and moderately frost-hardy. Regular tip pruning can help maintain shape. Banskia integrifolia can grow between 10 to 20 metres high with a width or 4 to 8 metres.
