Hairpin Banksia (Banksia spinulosa)

Botanical Information:

Family: Proteaceae
Genus: Banskia
Species: spinulosa

Meaning of name:
Banksia, after Sir Joseph Banks (1743–1820), an English naturalist and botanist who accompanied (then) Lieutenant James Cook on the Endeavour in 1768–1771, and who did much to bring Australian botany to the European world
spinulosa is from Latin: spinula, spine, thorn. Possibly a reference to the leaf tips

Banksia spinulosa was first collected sometime between 1788 and 1793 by John White, who was Surgeon General to the New South Wales British colony at the time. He called it the ‘Prickly-leaved Banksia’ but it is now known as the Hairpin Banksia.

B. spinulosa’s natural range extends along the eastern coast of Australia from Victoria, through NSW and right up to Cairns in northern Queensland, and westwards from the coastline into the forests of the Great Dividing Range. The flower spikes are from 10 to 20cm in length (4 to 8 inches) and the shrub reaches from 1m to 3m in height (3 to 10 feet).

This print features in the Banksia Flower Collection 1 triptych collection, the Banksia Flower Collection 2 diptych collection, and the Banksia Flower Collection 3 diptych collection.
