Banksia coccinea or Scarlet Banksia.
Belongs to the Protaeceae family and is an erect shrub/small tree 2-4m high, branchlets have woolly white hairs. Leaves are leathery rounded and toothed. The flowers are spectacular scarlet being made up by the flower base itself which is grey and then the styles which are the brilliant red. The styles are arranged in rows on the squat spikes – winter, spring, summer blooming. Found naturally from Albany to Hopetoun in Western Australia, this particular plant was photographed in Kings Park Perth in Western Australia.

I live in beautiful Western Australia, where we are lucky to a wonderful diversity of wildflowers, many of which appear in my portfolio.
