Banksia menziesii flowering now with different coloured flowers.
This photo is of a dwarf form of Banksia menziesii which is growing in Keysbrook in the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale. It was grown from seed that we purchased and propagated, not realising that it was a dwarf form which flowers prolifically. There are different forms of this Banksia menziesii and it is not unusual to find ones that have yellow flowers in amongst plants with the common red/orange flower form. However, there are even more differences to be found in Banksia woodlands, "A vast range of distinctive colours occurs naturally - yellow-gold, cream, pale yellow, salmon-pink, dark pink-red, burgundy, bronze and chocolate". (Banksias. Kevin Collins, Kathy Collins & Alex George. Blooming Books Pty Ltd. 2008.)
The flowers in this photo are a pink/yellow flower.
