Banksia oblongifolia – Fern Leaf Banksia

A small to medium sized shrub native to the east coast, Banksia oblongifolia is a very hardy and slow growing plant, particularly great for coastal areas. It flowers well in cultivation and flowers attract many birds.
Ideal for planting under established Eucalyptus trees, it needs good drainage, but is adaptable to different soil types. Pruning can keep it in better shape, and it could be amenable to bonsai.
