Description

The Bull Banksia, Banksia grandis, is a Western Australian native that stands proudly as a small to mid-size tree. Graced with pale yellow to lime yellow flowers from Makuru to Kambarang (winter to spring), it's a dazzling centrepiece for gardens aiming for a native touch. Apart from its captivating blooms, its bold stature makes it an excellent choice as a feature tree or a natural screen against neighbours.

When planting the Bull Banksia, ensure you enrich poor, sandy soils with a quality soil conditioner for optimal growth. During its first Bunuru (summer), give it some extra deep watering to foster root establishment, though once settled, it showcases its drought-hardy nature effortlessly. For a bounty of lively blooms, nourishing it with a native plant fertiliser during Djilba (early spring) will set it up for a vibrant flowering season.
