Banksia is a native Australian flower that grows on a shrub or tree and can be found both in the wild and in home gardens. They grow in a variety of landscapes across Australia, (excluding dry land) and produce a cone that opens and blooms as a large flower comprised of hundreds (or even thousands) of single spikes. The Banksia flowers are most often yellow, but can also be orange, red or pink. Several Banksia species are rare or endangered.
