Banksia baueri or Possum Banksia
A fuzzy flowering shrub from South Western Australia. Banksia baueri develops a mounding habit to around 5-6' high and slightly wider. The large flowers develop during the cooler months and persist throughout the year. Each flower head can grow to 6" wide by 9" tall and is extremely soft to the touch.
Provide this banksia with full sun and good drainage for best broth and flowering. Little to no pruning is necessary during its early years. Hardy to around 26f.
