  • In bushland Creeping Banksias are not often as big as seen at Broadway Arboretum because they are normally reduced in size by fire.
  • Creeping Banksia have underground stems which pop up laterally and flower, so the flowers are on the outside of the bush at ground level. This can be seen on the south western side of the plant identifed as SJF01, and can be seen on the photo in Florabase.
  • Favoured by Honey Possums.
  • Is susceptible to dieback (1).
