Banksia carlinoides or (formerly) Dryandra carlinoides
A dense shrub to 4' high and a little less wide from South Western Australia. Dryandras are interesting plants in both form and flower and not often seen or grown in the US. I grow them for their smaller scale and unique foliage. This shrub is a terminal bloomer with well-presented flowers during early Spring.
Dryandras prefer full sun, good air flow and better than average drainage. Their smaller scale makes them good candidates for large containers. Tip prune at a young age to encourage a fuller form. Hardy to at least 26f and possibly lower.
