Banksia marginata, also known as Silver Banksia, Australian evergreen shrubs of the protea family.
Its natural occurrence is throughout from South Australia, Victoria and eastern New South Wales and Tasmania. Some forms have a lignotuber, which is a woody swelling at the stem base that regenerates after fire.
All banksias produce copious nectar and are ideal for attracting wildlife into gardens. Seeds are also eaten by cockatoos, particularly the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo.
