Best Australian natives for pots & small gardens. The trend towards smaller gardens has inspired the plant lovers in the nursery industry to respond with an ever-increasing range of Australian plants that will delight those who want to attract birds and butterflies and bring a little bit of the bush onto their balconies. From banksias to bottlebrush there are plants that will add colour and texture to provide year round interest.
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.
