„Banksia serrata“

from the gallery of Geoff Bryant
Description:

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.
