This web-page only has 4 of these Banksias, but as you will quickly see they are very different from the Banksias found in the Sydney region - and are very special indeed.
These 4 banksias were found on a trip to Western Australia in October 2005, and what may come to mind is that this was spring, and East coast banksias flower in late summer and autumn.
The Scarlet Banksia (Banksia coccinea) is found around Albany and into the adjacent Stirling Ranges.
