Banksia repens

Moderately vigorous in habitat and may spread up to 3m across. The branches are horizontal and may be just below ground level which makes the plant appear to have flower spikes growing out from the ground. The leaves of the plant are large and deeply lobed. Flowers are small, tubular shaped and cream coloured when fully open but may have pink or orange tinges at the bud stage. Flowering occurs in spring and early summer. Creeping Banksia can be grown in areas of summer rainfall.
