Artist's Description

The Rose-Fruited Banksia (Banksia laricina) is a species of shrub in the plant genus Banksia endemic to southwestern Western Australia. It derives its specific Latin name from larix or larch, which its foliage is said to resemble. The common name comes from the striking fruits which resemble wooden roses. Other common names are Rose Banksia and Pom-Pom Banksia.It grows as a woody shrub to 2 m high and wide with fine green foliage, narrow linear leaves to 1.5 cm (0.6 in) long, flowering occurs in winter. The small yellowish inflorescences are unremarkable, resembling pom-poms, and are often hidden within the foliage. These are followed by the characteristic fruiting bodies, the follicles of which are bright green when young before fading to a brown-grey colour (Wikipedia).
