The Old Man Banksia is a character filled small to medium sized tree with leathery serrated leaves and creamy yellow to brown large flowers in summer. The flowers are followed by interesting pods , and the bark is lumpy and bumpy, both of which helped inspire May Gibbs Big Bad Banksia man. It naturally occurs on the east coast of Australia from southern Queensland to Victoria, plus northern Tasmania. Specimens can slowly grow to up to 15 metres, though usually will be smaller. Best in sandy soils. Great for coastal gardens as it withstands salty winds. A good plant for attracting nectar loving birds and other wildlife, and black cockatoos like feeding on the developing cones.
