Banksia Yellow Wing is an ideal native choice for hedging. It has foliage that begins at ground level (readily maintained with regular lateral pruning), it has a natural density of habit, easily trimmed for both formal and informal finishes. Even better, it’s a blaze of colour in autumn, winter & spring, with long golden-bronze brushes decorating the dark green foliage.
