Banksia marginata ‘Minimarg’

A very tough dwarf Banksia that adapts well to a wide range of soil and climate types. Suitable for low hedges, rockeries and as a general low mounding garden shrub. It naturally forms a good rounded  shape, and pruning after flowering will encourage and even more dense habit. The leaves are an attractive colour, dark green on top with silver grey underneath, making a lovely contrast. It has a long flowering period, from winter to summer, with eye catching yellow flowers. They are attractive to honey eating birds, insects and other wildlife. Good for sun to part shade.
