Banksia serrata

(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)

A native of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania coastal plains where it prefers light, well-drained soils in an open, sunny position. It is drought and frost resistant.

An evergreen tree growing to 10 metres (30ft) with a spread of 6 metres (18ft). The stem is short, erect but twisted and gnarled with grey, furrowed bark and grotesquely spreading branches; the leaves are elliptical to ovate, discolorous (dark glossy green above and matt, pale green on the underside), 16cm (7in) long, leathery and harsh to touch, leaf margins are deeply serrate (saw-toothed); flowers are silvery grey, woolly spikes, cylindrical to oblong, and 15cm long appearing in summer; the fruit is woody follicles embedded into the spent flower spike.

Offered is a packet of 5 seeds with grownotes to assist you to successfully cultivate this Australian icon.

This plant, though slow, grows readily from seed.
