Caption: Bull banksia seed cone. Close-up of seeds being released from a seed cone of bull banksia (Banksia grandis). Bull banksia is a dark green shrub that produces 30-centimetre-long yellow flower spikes. After pollination the seeds are produced in this cone-like structure. It requires the heat of a fire for the seeds to be released. Such plants are called pyrophytes. Bull banksia is native to West Australia.
