Banksia integrifolia is a tall shrub or small tree 6 - 16m tall. It is common in sandy coastal areas, but also grows in the forests of tablelands. The light grey bark is hard and rough.
Mature leaves 5 -10 cm long, are stiff, entire (untoothed), dull dark green above and hairy-white underneath. They are generally lanceolate. Younger leaves are irregularly toothed and shorter than the mature leaves. The species name 'integrifolia' means whole-leaved.
The pale yellow flower spikes of Banksia integrifolia range from 7-14cm long and 7cm wide. The bent styles emerge from individual flowers on the spike, straightening and spreading.
A short time after flowering, the seed pods protrude cleanly from the woody cone and open to shed black, papery, winged seeds.
Banksia integrifolia flowers from January to June.
