Banksia oblongifolia or Fern Leaved Banksia is a very hardy evergreen tree with stunning yellow spike-like flowers arriving in the cooler months and an unusual sprawled, gnarly growth habit. Very popular for cut flowers, which are long-lasting in floral arrangements. Banksia oblongifolia is highly attractive to local wildlife (especially birds) and adds an interesting contrast and variety to most gardens. Ideal for planting under established Eucalyptus trees, it needs good drainage, but is adaptable to different soil types. Pruning can keep it in better shape, and it could be amenable to bonsai. Banksias are phosphorus sensitive, so a good native fertiliser is best when it comes to feeding time.

Soil: Adaptable to most soil types.
Conditions: Full sun to part shade. Coastal, heat, wind, salt, and frost tolerant.
Size: Height 1-3m x width 2-3m
