Southern Blechnum Banksia (Banksia blechnifolia) captivates with its ground-hugging form and rustic-orange flower spikes, predominantly blooming during Djilba (late winter/spring). These vibrant blooms, rising above its fern-like foliage, provide a dramatic contrast and offer nectar to local birds, enriching any garden space with both beauty and wildlife activity.

Optimal when planted directly in the ground, this low-growing banksia appreciates well-drained soils, but for those with sandy or less fertile terrains, incorporating organic matter is beneficial. A full sun position suits it best, coupled with regular watering, decreasing the frequency during Djeran (autumn) and Makuru (winter). To bolster its vitality and support flowering, apply a slow-release native fertiliser during Bunuru (late summer/early autumn). If necessary, any light pruning should occur post-flowering to maintain its sprawling form.
