Banksia Flower. NZLANDSCAPES Photos. Landscape Ideas, Auckland New Zealand.

Landscaping in New Zealand with exotic plant species will provide some unexpected garden delight during the cooler Autumn growing season. When roses are about to finish and annuals are heading to seed there are some magic plants to fill in the sometimes dreary NZ garden. Shown here is a Banksia, origins Australian, a bright addition to any New Zealand landscape. Known as the coastal Banksia it is hardy in low moisture situations, can tolerate some extreme weather and is bountiful in candle shaped flowers. The leaves are dark green glossy top and silvery undersides. The total mature tree height can reach 15m+ so can eventually become quite an impressive addition to any garden.
