Artist's Description

Photo taken in Kings Park Perth in Western Australia 2010
Banksia nutans is a small, bushy shrub up to about 2 metres high. The leaves are narrow linear and up to about 20 mm long. The cylindrical inflorescences are seen in winter to summer and are about 7 cm wide at flowering. They are unusual in that they are pendulous on short lateral branchlets, a feature shared by only a few other species (eg. B.aculeata, B.caleyi, B.lemanniana, B.rosserae). The flowers are dull pink in bud and open to a rusty brown colour. They are often held within the foliage but, despite this, the flowers are quite conspicuous as the foliage is not excessively dense.
