Another of the Hakeas in flower was Hakea cristata. Most of the Hakeas I have seen smother themselves in flowers. Some are quite inconspicuous with other features which catch your attention.
Hakea cristata was covered in white flowers, flowering from June to August. It is an open shrub which will accept quite severe pruning. The pink new growth is very pretty.
This is a fairly rare plant from Western Australia. Heavy frost damages young growth. It is an adaptable plant so long as it has good drainage.
