Banksia infructescence with seed follicles
Endemic to this country and unique in every way, these plants are easily recognised by their characteristic flower spikes and fruiting cones. Banksia range in size from prostrate woody shrubs to trees up to 30 metres tall.
Banksia are naturally adapted to the presence of regular bushfires in our landscape. Fire stimulates the opening of these seed-bearing follicles and also the germination of seed in the ground.
