Hakea laurina Pin Cushion Hakea 200MM

Hakea laurina ‘Pin Cushion Hakea’ – 200MM

I am Pincushion Hakea. My family originated from South Western Australia

Botanic Name: Hakea laurina

Upright – Bird attracting

I am a medium native tree with showy and unusual flower heads that look like a red pincushion with prominent white, cream or pale pink styles. I am a great way to attract nectar feeding birds and beneficial insects to the garden. My attractive leathery blue-green leaves often curl adding interest. Particularly hardy I thrive in conditions and soils that challenge many plants. I am great as a handsome specimen tree or combined in a row as a tall screening hedge.
