Botany picture #232: Banksia marginata
Banksia marginata (Proteaceae), the silver banksia, ACT, 2016. I went to Tidbinbilla with friends today, and this cone was the only one we saw in flower; really it is not the season. I think this may also be the only Banksia in the Canberra area. If one wants to see more one would have to drive towards the coast.
