  • Title:  Banksia robur, Swamp banksia, broad-leaved banksia
  • Description:  A distinctive species with large, leathery leaves to 30 cm long and 10 cm wide which are particularly ornamental in the juvenile stages, having a velvet, rusty brown appearance. The prominent, well-displayed flowers up to 15 cm long, are often a metallic, greenish-blue at the bud stage before maturing to a yellow-green shade and are produced from summer through to winter. They are attractive to both bees and birds. Frequently used in amenity landscape situations in Queensland, it is a very adaptable species, tolerating a range of soil types, both cool and warm climates and full sun or part shade. The lignotuber enables B. robur to be hard pruned, to near the base if required, from where it will quickly shoot into new growth to form a multi-branched compact shrub of 2 m x 2 m or more.
