Austraflora has bred and trialed Banksia Sentinel just for those awkward spots and narrow spaces. While it will grow to around two metres high, it only has a spread of a metre or so, and it’s a simple matter of trimming back the offending leaves. This will produce an even denser habit. Large lemon brushes will keep the birds happy from summer through to mid winter, whether you have an inland garden or a first-line coastal plot. You can also grow it as a small windbreak or clip it as a neat hedge. Sentinel is the Designer Plant that landscapers have had on their wishlist for a long time.
