Banksia 'Yellow Wing' is a medium rounded shrub with fine dense foliage and golden bronze brushes in spring, autumn and winter. The flower spikes are held well above the foliage as beacons for a range of honey-eating birds, and parrots love their seed. Particularly suitable for hedging, screening or specimen plantings as the foliage is dense to the ground. The blooms are great for cutting, and last well in water, may also be dried. Good for sun and in most soils as long as they are well drained.
