Banksia laricina - Rose Fruited Banksia - 10 seeds

Banksia laricina, commonly  known as the Rose Fruited Banksia, is a lovely shrub that is native to Western Australia growing as a shrub to 2m tall.


The linear leaves are green and measure 5 to 15mm long by 0.8mm wide. 
The obovoid inflorescences are seen in Autumn and Winter and are about 5cm wide at flowering, occurring on short lateral branchlets, are yellow fawn in colour and are often held within the foliage. 
The seeds are enclosed in prominent follicles, which are bright green when new, attached to a woody cone and are generally retained within the cone until burnt.  The shape of the cone gives rise to the common name Rose Fruited Banksia' because it is reminiscent of rose petals - unlike those of any other Banksia!
Banksia laricina is rarely cultivated but should require a Mediterranean climate (i.e. wet winter, dry Summer) and sandy soil to do well.  In common with other western Banksias, the species is likely to be difficult to establish in areas with humid Summers.
