Banksia cunninghamii – the missing plant

Banksia cunninghamii May 20 Photo: Jan Allen

Looking at the plantlist recently I noticed Banksia cunninghamii wasn’t there. There are quite a few in the NW corner of the reserve and they’re several metres tall and wide, so pretty unmissable. Just goes to show how easy it is to overlook the familiar.

They’re just coming into flower – I love the colouring of Jan’s photo. She reports the brilliant yellow Sunshine wattle and the prostate hibbertia are flowering too.
