APOLOGY TO THOSE WHO BOUGHT MIS-NAMED HAKEAS FROM THE YARRA YARRA GROWERS STALL AT OUR RECENT NATIVE PLANT SALE: What was sold as Hakea prostrata is in fact Hakea lissocarpha, another prickly but smaller hardy hakea. Similarly what was sold as Hakea pandanicarpa ssp crassifolia is actually Hakea circumalata, & vice versa. Click on the label beneath the plant image to see our description of the plant.
