It has wavy, serrated, narrow wedge-shaped leaves and yellow, orange or brown flower spikes March to November. It grows in well drained soils in full sun in areas where it receives extra seasonal rainfall. Drought and frost hardy once established and suitable for coastal conditions and because of its natural habitat, it may tolerate more moisture than other banksias.
