Plant Description:West Australian Species. Commonly known as Bull Banksia, Giant Banksia or Mangite. Normally grown as a tree between 5 to 10 metres in height, can get a little higher. Near the south coast and when planted in among granite rocks, it has been know to perform as stunted, spreading shrub. Its trunks are short, stout and often crooked, with the rough grey bark characteristic of Banksia. The leaves are large, long and consist of a series of triangular lobes, new growth is a pale lime green turning darker with age making this banksia very attractive.
