Banksia as small trees: Banksia marginata

, , , , , ,

Every Australian Native garden should have at least one Banksia, even if it is a ground cover or low spreading shrub, they are a signature plant.

Banksia marginata grows to be a beautiful small tree with a thick canopy and often very low lying branches, therefore they can make an excellent large screening plant. The new growth is a brilliant lime that turns to dark green as the leaves age, this gives the appearance of having a soft glowing effect from a distance.
