  • Title:  Banksia formosa, previously Dryandra formosa, Showy Dryandra, Golden Emperor
  • Description:  Probably the best known of the dryandas and cultivated in several countries as a cut flower crop. Under cultivation it may reach a maximum height of 2.5 m with a pyramidal form. The dark green, deeply cut leaves can reach 120 mm in length. Flowers are produced freely over much of the year, but particularly during spring. They are rich bronze at the bud stage, and open to a golden-orange colour. Borne terminally on stems of 30 cm or more make them suitable for commercial picking. A light, free-draining soil and a sunny position is preferred by this species. It is generally easy to grow and will tolerate occasional frosts of -5 ºC.
