Banksias in Australia

in #photography5 years ago (edited)

I came across this most unusual plant in Australia. It is called Banksia and apparently, there are over 170 species of this plant in Australia. some of them grow into shrubs/bushes, whilst others grow into trees. Amazing flowers these, and here I will share a few photos I took.

WoW! Nice shots! Crazy plants & really extraordinary beautiful flowers! Do the bees come to these flowers? Are these plants poisonous?
