Banksia - Prionotes
These gorgeous peachy blooms are very similar to the 'Hookeriana' species, with the most notable different in the larger width of their serrated leaves. The cones are slightly more elongated as well.
These ‘Acorn Banksias’ dry perfectly, retaining their colour and fuzzy feel, and will last forever in your home; the flowers sit upon strong, woody stems that are excellent for vases. Banksias also work well for extra-large wreaths and dried arrangements.
Native to the southwestern part of the country, these flowers grow on large, bushy shrubs and bloom in the winter months. As with all banksias, they will transform into ornate seed pods, many of which need to be exposed to fire in order to germinate the seeds. Well-adapted to bushfires... many banksia species will easily recover from fire due to the thick bark that protects their trunk, and the presence of lignotubers which allow the plant to re-shoot from their base. What a truly magical native wildflower!
