Banksia lemanniana - Yellow Lantern Banksia - 10 seeds

Banksia lemanniana is an attractive fast growing shrub type Banksia growing in the wild to a maximum of 5m in height, the leaves are a glossy deep green, scattered, with attractive rusty red new foliage 10cm long with slightly serrated edges.  The flowers are 5 - 7cm long, broadly tubular in a pale yellow to lemon yellow, honey-scented and appear from Spring to Summer.
The natural habitat of this Banksia is the south west of Western Australia where it inhabits rocky sand or loam in tall shrubland with a rainfall of 500-600mm a year.  This species is frost tolerant to -7°C and recommended for areas with low humidity. 
Propagation is easy from seed which should be sown into a standard seed raising mix and watered as required.  The best times to propagate Banksia from seed are either Spring or Autumn, with Autumn being the favoured time, both in cultivation and in the wild.
As with most Banksias this species can be raised in pots for the first year and can be maintained permanently in large tubs if desired.  In planting out seedlings avoid too much root disturbance, plant into well drained soil with an acidic pH of around 6.0 to 7.0.
