Description The Shaggy Dryandra (Banksia splendida) is a shrub that grows to two metres in height. The leaves are long and narrow with pointed tip. The flower heads are cup shaped with red centres and are produced in late winter and early spring. This species used to be known as Dryandra speciosa until the Dryandra genus was included in the Banksias in 2007. Since there was already a plant named Banksia speciosa it was given the name splendida.
Habitat grows on sandy and loam soil
Distribution Banksia splendida is found in an area about 200 km east of Perth in south west of Western Australia.
