Banksia meisneri – Meisner’s Banksia

This is a wonderful ornamental species with a delicate appearance, growing to a small shrub with many branches. It has unusual and attractive yellow flowers, occurring from autumn to spring.
Needs a well drained soil and dappled shade or part sun, but will withstand full sun conditions. It is somewhat tolerant of frost and drought once established.
As with most other banksias from Western Australia, it could be difficult to maintain in areas with humid summers.
