Native Bunch | Close shave in the Bush
The Dryandra in our Posies this week is very eye-catching with its burnt orange flower and beautiful green sculptural foliage. In the early 1900's the Dryandra was commonly referred to as the 'Shaving Brush' flower because of its shape in the bud stage and more so as the flower blossomed which looked like the bristles of a brush! Named after the Swedish naturalist, Jonas Dryander, who died around 1810, it was once thought that Dryandra was a seperate genus to the Banksia but is now part of the Banksia genus.
