Banksia plagiocarpa, or Hinchinbrook Banksia, Blue Banksia or Dallachy's Banksia, is restricted to Hinchinbrook Island in northern Queensland and the adjoining mainland close to the coast. It is a rare species of banksia displaying stunningly attractive blue-grey flowers, growing 5-6 cm in diameter. Banksia plagiocarpa delights from mid-summer to early winter with its unusual cylindrical flower spikes. The new growth is rusty red and covered in red velvety fur. This species will form a nicely shaped shrub and may get sparse and leggy if not pruned. As with all banksia they attract birds and small mammals for their nectar.
