Banksia media
 Southern Plains Banksia

A Banksia from Western Australia which is in flower now at the Illawarra Grevillea Park. This is one species which does well on the east coast The flowers are a remarkable glowing yellow and visible from quite a distance . This specimen was about 2 metres tall and of fairly open straggling habit, suggesting that pruning to shape may be needed to give it a better overall appearance.
