A Flower a Week : #6 Banksia

banksia Banksia Banksia Banksia Banksia Banksia

These are just a few of the Banksia species. The Banksia is a native Australian plant. There are 173 Banksia species, and all but one occur naturally only in Australia. Banksias were named after Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820 ), who, in 1770, was the first European to collect specimens of these plants. 

In 2010 we found “The Banksia Farm”. It was  just outside the small village of Mt Barker in Western Australia. What an amazing place. Kevin and Kathy Collins have created  the world’s only complete arboretum of Banksia species. I never knew there are so many and varied forms of this unique plant.

Nalinki on “Angles and views” is hosting a weekly series called: “Flowersoverflowers”, it will be posted every Tuesday. The idea is to bring some more colorful pics of nature into our blogosphere
