Taken in Albany, Western Australia.
Possibly the most ancient living banksia species in the South West of Western Australia – fossilised cones have been dated as 18 million years old. Banksia attenuata is long lived – up to 300 years old. It can also hold viable seed in its cones for many years – up to 12 years has been recorded.

  • Pretty much my thoughts too when I saw this on my monitor, but I wanted the real thing, as is. Maybe at a later date I’ll do something like that with it.
