Details

Botanical Name: Banksia ericifolia

One of the most beautiful banksias in Australia, with its large striking spikes of yellow to reddish-orange flowers contrasted with light-green to greyish-green leaves. Not only is it the most colourful of the eastern Banksia species when in flower, it is also one of the best plants for attracting honey-eating birds.

We hope you enjoy these Wildflower seeds, just another great example of  seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

Plant Height: 2-5m

How To Grow

Sow in warm areas at any time. In colder climates wait until the danger of frost is over. Sow by pressing seeds in the soil surface, direct where they are to grow or into seed trays filled with a moist quality seed raising mix. Cover lightly, water and then keep moist but not too wet. It is beneficial to add Mr Fothergill’s Wildflower Seed Starter granules to soil surface. Place in a warm shaded position to germinate fully. Transplant to final growing position when about 7cm (3”) - avoid disturbing the roots. Grow in full sun or part shade in well draining soil. Water in well and then regularly until established but avoid fertilisers that are not designed for Australian natives.

Seedlings emerge 21-42 days
