“These would have to be one of my favourite Banksias of all time. Named “Acorn” after it’s distinctive shape. During the heat of summer they line all the roads and highways around my hometown of Mullewa. I love how big and bold and dramatic the flowers and leaves are!” Helen Ansell
This is a native of Western Australia and is mainly found in the Mid West and Wheatbelt between the coast and the Darling Scarp. It can reach up to 10m (35ft) in height, but in more exposed areas or in the north of its range it can be much smaller. The leaves are serrated and dull green. Its large bright flower spikes are initially white before opening and then a bright orange. The common name arises from the partly opened flower spikes, which are shaped like an acorn. Flowering commences in February or March, peaks in March and April and ends in July or August. Many birds and small mammals are attracted to the flower heads to feed on the large volumes of nectar they produce.
