Banksia candolleana is a small shrub to 1.5 metres tall. The unusual propeller like shape of the seed head combines with a compact growth habit and attractive flower head to make an interesting garden shrub. The flowers open golden yellow and age to grey, and are attractive to birds. They can also be used for cut flowers. Use it as a feature plant in the garden, and it can also be grown in a large container. It is very low maintenance. Feed with a low phosphorus native fertiliser.
