Advanced Trees - A focus on Hakea

The 'who's who' in the Hakea world. Read on to find the one that's just right for your outdoor space.

Hakea multilineata

Grass-leaf Hakea

This tree is a gem. When in flower it has the most amazing array of flowers - in combinations of light and dark pink, woven incricately and delicately up the tree. The open form of this Hakea means that the flowers are very easy to see. Outside of its flowering period, it is just as stunning. Known as grass-leaf Hakea it has an attractive open habit and long slender linear leaves.

Hakea laurina

Pincushion Hakea

Hakea laurina is bold and handsome with simple and shapely leaves widely spaced that wave and curl attractively. Flowers are packed in tight clusters on ripe wood. Flowering starts towards the end of April and goes normally until the end of August. The rounded pin-cushion flower heads are soft cherry red in colour, with projecting long styles, changing from white to pale pink when mature.

Hakea salicifolia

Willow-leafed Hakea

Hakea salisifolia has attractive pale to mid-green linear leaves to 12cm in length. The new growth has pinkish red to bronze tips which makes that in itself an attractive feature. To see this tree as a screen is a delight as its blend of colours particularly in winter and spring is delightful.

Hakea bucculenta x francisiana 'Pink Pokers'

Hakea 'Pink Pokers' is another eye-catching specimen. Its flowers are pink and appear to be woven tight to the tree. The open habit ensures that these wonderful blooms are noticed. At other times of the year it is a beautiful specimen, great for adding softness to native gardens and structures. Planted close, it offers good screening.

Hakea bucculenta 'Red Pokers'

This showy Hakea produces orange-red elongated flowers in winter and spring, followed by woody seed capsules. Like Hakea multilineata its leaves are long and narrow. Its open habit ensures that full attention is given it during flowering season between July and September.
