Description

The "Dwarf Form" of the Firewood Banksia, botanically known as Banksia menziesii, captivates with its radiant reddish, orange-brown blooms. These enchanting flowers make their debut during Djilba (late winter to early spring), establishing the plant as a garden favourite. Taking the form of a compact, medium-sized shrub, it offers both vibrant colours and a manageable stature, making it an adaptable choice for varied garden designs.

Best suited for in-ground planting, the "Dwarf Form" thrives in well-draining soils; those working with sandy patches can enhance the ground with compost or organic matter for better results. Flourishing under full sun, this cultivar needs minimal supplemental watering once firmly rooted. For consistent growth and flower production, apply a slow-release native fertiliser in Makuru (winter) and consider a gentle pruning after the flowering season to preserve its dense form and encourage future blossoms.
