Description

Banksia ericifolia

A very attractive Australian evergreen shrub with cylindrical cone like blooms

A popular plant in the garden with one general advantage in that it can grow on clay and moist soils (although may not do as well). Reported to be a relatively easy plant to grow if it establishes well. It can grow into a large shrub and spread widely so allow some room. Can produce copious flower spikes which attract birds.

Plant in a sunny spot and allow for drainage but will tolerate some moisture. Many banksias benefit from growing on a slight slope. Do not mulch too heavily and try to keep grass away from the trunk. Very hardy once established. It is excellent for attracting honeyeater and other birds.

Slow growing but will grow consistently if happy and will form a very nice shrub after a few years. Will likely grow to about 4 m in a garden (although this will take time) and tends to spread widely, so allow some space. Very suitable for sandy gardens.

Do not apply a high phosphorus fertiliser as Proteaceae are generally sensitive.

Prune after flowering or harvest cut flowers. Can be trained into a denser shape with periodic pruning. Reported to tolerate frost.


Prune lightly after flowering to promote bushy compact growth.
H X W is 4m x 2M
