Bansksia - Coastal prostrate not flowering

    2 responses

We've had several Banksia - Coastal Prostrate for three years. They have a sunny position and we live on the far south coast of NSW. They are vigorous and healthy but have never flowered. Can anyone help with why this might be?

Most trees take a minimum of two to three years to start flowering if they are cutting based, seedlings take longer. However, Banksia flower on older wood, so they can take even longer than this depending on the species, generally 5 years minimum for the coastal banksia. I assume this transfers to the prostrate form as well, but I may be wrong.

Thanks for that. I’ll leave them a couple of more years and see how they go. Cheers
