Banksia Surprise

We also have waiting for us in our garden a Banksia surprise! A surprise because there is a hint of the flower to come but what will it look like? The small tree is covered with spent cone-like follicles, and a couple of old flowers where we can see the flower will probably be a small to medium sized one.
a Banksia surprise awaits, what will these flowers look like next year?
Most Banksia flowers are yellow, will ours be yellow too? I don't think we'll find out now until next year, from what I've been able to find out they flower in the summer.
this mature Banksia is in need of a prune
On a repeat of Gardening Australia this week, there was a story presented by Angus about pruning Banksias. This was very useful for us, as this mature specimen we have is in need of a prune!
