Description

Banksia media, commonly known as the Golden Stalk Banksia, presents the vibrant "Dwarf Form" cultivar, a standout addition for any garden. This cultivar is renowned for its light golden yellow blooms, providing a luminous touch during the Djilba (late winter to early spring) season. Being a medium-sized shrub, it acts as an eye-catching focal point and adds layered depth to garden designs.

"Dwarf Form" is best suited when planted in the ground and flourishes in well-draining soils. For those with sandy landscapes, enriching the soil with compost or organic matter can prove beneficial. It loves basking in full sun and appreciates regular watering, especially during the Birak (summer) and Bunuru (late summer) seasons. To maximise its potential, fertilise in Makuru (winter) with a slow-release native fertiliser and consider a light prune post-flowering to maintain its dense form and promote subsequent blossoming.
