Banksia & Grevillia - Alissa Duke

Grevillea and Banksia flowers

I picked these two flowers from a local area where weeds and imported species are being removed by the local Landcare group and the area has been gradually replanted with species indigenous to the Sydney area. See our Landcare website

Grevillea sericea "pink spider flower"
Flowers are this size. bush grows to 2 meters

Banksia intergrifoli. known as Coast Banksia - flower spikes are a bit larger than this size. The tree grows to 16 meters
