Couch Honeypot

Couch Honeypot 1

Banksias are strange looking plants, but this one is particularly odd. It is called Couch Honeypot (Banksia dallanneyi) and mostly grows as a low, spreading plant, though it can be a more upright shrub. It grows in the southwest of Western Australia from about Geraldton to Albany, and reportedly flowers from May to October. We noticed this one in flower at Lesmurdie Falls a few weeks back.
