Banksia dryandroides

The Dryandra-leaved Banksia is a small, dense shrub from South Western Australia. While it does flower, the real reason to grow it is for the leaves, which form a dense mass and add instant effect to the garden. It adapts well to gardens with good drainage and airflow and does well with the occasional dose of chelated iron.
