Banksia prionotes

Synonyms: Banksia prionotes 'dwarf'

  • Perennial shrub to 1.5m
  • Large acorn-shaped flowers
  • Suited to small gardens and large containers

A compact shrub growing to 1.5m high and 1.5m high with long serrated grey-green leaves. The large, acorn-shaped flower spikes are 10-15cm long and covered in white velvety buds that open to soft apricot coloured flowers in autumn and winter. Flowers open gradually from the bottom of the spike, giving them the appearance of acorns. Use in a mixed native border or to attract birds. Suited to small gardens and large containers. Excellent cut flower. Tolerates drought and light frosts.

Native to southwestern Western Australia. Also known as 'Orange Banksia'.

Note: Seeds of many native plants are dormant and will not germinate until ideal environmental conditions are met. Follow instructions for pre-treatment and sowing, and be patient; some wild harvested seeds can take much longer to germinate than expected.
