Artist's Description

Featured in:
The Banksia Group, 2nd February, 2014

Found in a private garden in Whangarei, New Zealand. Nymet garden opens to the public a couple of times a year and I was fortunate enough to be in Whangarei on one of the opening dates.
Banksiac praemorsa red, a member of the Protea family, is also known as the Cut-leaf Banksia. It is a fairly open, broad-leaved shrub which produces spectacular, cylindrical flower spikes. The short, serrated eaves have an unusual truncated tip, appearing as though they have been clipped; hence the common name of cut-leaf. The flower spikes may reach over 30cm in length and are generally a wonderful wine-red color. It is an attractive tall-growing feature shrub.

Camera used: Pentax K30
