Banksia Ericifolia

Considering last weeks photo turned out to be an environmental weed, this week I thought I would showcase a stunning (Australian) native.

Meet Banksia Ericifolia, a species of woody shrub known for its orange or red autumn inflorescences that contrast with its green fine-leaved heath-like foliage*. 

The flowers can grow up to 500 – 600 mm (19.6 – 23.6 inches)** but these ones were only approx. 300 mm (11.8 inches).  All the same, I hope that impressive size shows in the photos.

  1. Eat your heart out! I found a pub with a “Rib Fillet” Pamie. This was fantastic with home chips and a little light salad. Bunya celebrating 700th Meeting this Wednesday.

    I can still taste the flavour of the steak and the sauce was done to perfection, and the cheese added to a marvellous taste experience.

    Cheers for now
