Banksia epica

Email

  • Title:  Banksia epica
  • Description:  Rarely seen in cultivation, this very distinctive species is quite rare and naturally occurs in deep sand along the tops of the limestone cliffs of southern Western Australia. Forming a well-branched, spreading bush of 2 m x 2 m, it has narrowly wedge-shaped leaves to 50 mm long with short teeth and woolly undersides. The soft, creamy yellow flower spikes may be up to 20 cm long and are tipped with purple. Successful cultivation will require very well-drained sandy soil types. It is unlikely to grow successfully in heavy soils or wet, humid environments. Photographed at Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia
