Hakea francisiana

A beautiful tall shrub that attracts birds and grows on well drained soils in full sun. Broad linear green leaves with erect cylindrical, tapering racemes of red flowers borne in the axils of the leaves in winter. Closely related to H.multilineata and H coriacea(indeed it was not until 1973 that H francisiana and H multilineata were distinguished as 2 distinct species).

 After researching this fascinating native I bumped into it at the heritage nursery native plants market today and brought it home!
