Pincushion Hakea

We have a Pincushion Hakea (Hakea laurina R.Br.) growing in our garden, ours is still a small shrub, now about 2 years old, that has not flowered yet. This is the tree it seeded from in a garden in Rosedale. I think it has one of the most spectacular flowers I have ever encountered.

What a beautiful, strange looking shrub. I love tropical foliage. I love visiting places with gorgeous flowers and lush, verdant plants. Maybe just because it's so novel compared to where I live. Thanks for sharing - it's stunning.
