Banksia

Banksia

Banksias were discovered by and named after renowned botanist Sir Joseph Banks at Botany Bay in 1770. Banksias provide an interesting and beautiful element to the landscape attracting birds and other wildlife to their spectacular, nectar rich flowers. They are also an attractive cut flower and can be made into a sweet refreshing drink when soaked in ice-cold water. In the garden, they are low maintenance and easy to grow. Most species of Banksia will grow on the coast and the dwarf varieties make great tub specimens for sunny balconies.

Coastal Plants

Coastal Plants

It is not as hard as you think to have a successful garden on the coast. Many plants grow well even with front line salt spray. Here is a list of native and exotic plants that will tolerate such conditions. The ultimate heights of some of the plants will vary depending on the degree of exposure in the garden. Taller plants could become ‘wind pruned’ and not grow to the height they would in a more sheltered position.

Eucalypts

Eucalyptus is one of three genera commonly referred to as "eucalypts", the others being Corymbia and Angophora. They are often known as gum trees because they exude sap from any break in the bark. At Wirreanda Nursery we grow a variety of the more common eucalypts found in Sydney and those that are requested by councils.
