Seed Photos submitted to Seed Library by Nettie Hulme from Forrest Victoria Australia


There are many Silver Banksia my bush garden - latin name Banksia Marginata, common name Silver Banksia due to the white underleaf giving silvery light- Aboriginal name "warock".

Found throughout South Eastern Australia and a favourite of the native honeyeater and bees.

I love the way the Banksia flower disintegrates and reveals the seed cone - the cone contains the seed separators which open up to release the winged seeds.

The seed cones can be quite large and they have a strong presence and I find the many openings very attractive.

The plant is both fire resistant and fire retardant and we live in a very high bushfire risk area which may be why there are so many of them. These strong cones store the seeds which then can be released and germinated after fire.

The seed separator has a lovely shape which is very satisfying to draw.

I took all the photos except for the seed separator which is used with permission from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banksia_marginata

I used a Sony DSLR A500 with full 75 -300mm zoom lens.
