This species is generally a shrub to about 4 metres but can grow taller.

The leaves are broad with toothed margins. The conspicuous flowers are fairly squat in comparison with other Banksias and bright orange/red in colour.

The spikes are about 100mm wide by a similar length and are held terminally on the stems. They are seen in late winter through to early summer.

The species relies on seed for regeneration.

B.coccinea is a very desirable garden plant because of its dramatic habit and spectacular flowers. It prefers sandy, very well drained soils.

The terminal flowers are ideal for cut flower arrangements.

Propagation of B.coccinea from seed is relatively easy .

5 seeds.
