Strawberry banksiaBanksia menziesii, commonly known as Firewood Banksia, Menzies Banksia or Firewheel Banksia, is a species of small tree or large shrub in the genus Banksia. It is found in Western Australia, from the Perth region north to the Murchison River. The name Firewood Banksia was a result of its quick burning properties and abundance as a source of firewood. The colour of the inflorescences has given rise to more unusual common names such as Port Wine Banksia, Flame Banksia and Strawberry Banksia.
