Banksia ‘Roller Coaster' is another autumn and winter-flowering dwarf selection that's been around quite a while now but should still be more widely seen.
Not nearly as refined as the previous banksias, this one is a true groundcover spreading about 4m across – or down as a spillover plant.
Its dark leathery leaves reveal silver underneath when turned up in the wind.
As a form of the Coast Banksia (B. integrifolia), the overall effect is appropriately more in keeping with a beach style garden.
For those actually near the beach, it has no problem handling sandy soils and salt winds.
