„Banksia serrata“

from the gallery of Geoff Bryant

The flowerheads of the Saw Banksia or Red Honeysuckle (Banksia serrata) just before they start to open. The grey colour becomes near white as the heads mature. This 10-16m tall evergreen tree is found in eastern Australia. The name Red Honeysuckle refers to the colour of the beautifully grained wood, while Saw Banksia is a reference to the serrated leaf edges, which are quite stiff once the foliage matures. Available as a stock photo at .
