Sizing guide
Banksia occidentalis, commonly known as Waterbush Banksia. It is a unique and attractive plant that can reach a height of around 2 meters (6.5 feet) when fully grown. The Waterbush Banksia has distinctive large, leathery leaves that are dark green on the upper side and silver-gray underneath. The flowers are cylindrical spikes with dense clusters of yellow to brownish-orange blooms that appear in late spring and summer.
To grow Waterbush Banksia, provide it with well-draining soil and a sunny location. It is relatively drought-tolerant once established but benefits from occasional watering during dry periods. Pruning should be done after flowering to maintain a compact shape and encourage new growth. This species is adaptable and can tolerate a range of soil types, including sandy and clay soils. It is also suitable for coastal areas and can withstand salt spray. With proper care and suitable conditions, Banksia occidentalis can thrive, adding beauty and interest to your garden while attracting native birds and insects.
