Banksia ericifolia Family Proteaceae
Banksia ericifolia is a shrub that can grow up to 6 m, without lignotuber. The height and shape is governed by its environment. The banksia found along the windy coastal areas, such as the cliffs at Cape Solander are shorter in height to those found in ideal conditions with may be almost like a small tree.

Leaves: are 10-20 mm long, fine, crowded and alternate on the stem. The leaves end in short, sharp point, mucronate leaf. Margins revolute, with a tooth each side of the apex, sparsely hirsute above becoming glabrous, tomentose below.

Flowers: golden-brown to pale yellow, often mauve at the base of perianth, the styles golden, orange or orang-red.
 

Found: in a wide variety of habitats from deep sand, sandy loam or sand over sandstone, in shrubland and woodland, and sometimes in semi-swampy locations, along and near the Central Coast and on adjacent ranges between Collaroy and Jervis Bay, all the way up to the Upper Blue Mountains, New South Wales.
