Banksia spinulosa 'Stumpy Gold' is an evergreen small shrub. A dense compact small shrub that is perfect for rockeries and smaller gardens, whether mass planted for dramatic effect, in small groups or in containers on the patio, veranda or deck. The flowers are a lovely golden colour, nectar rich and attractive to birds, insects and possums. Banksia spinulosa likes a well drained soil and a sunny position. Fertilise in spring with a low phosphorus native fertiliser, and mulch to discourage weeds.
