I've long read Banksiae seed can require two years to germinate. I've raised four seedlings from open pollinated Lutescens. Two have been fully double and one semi double with tulip shaped buds. The fourth succumbed to terminal mildew in infancy. This double yellow Banksiae is from OP Lutescens seed.

Nice. But for clarification: did they take two years to germinate?

Hi Margaret, sorry about that. No ma'am. All four of the self seedlings for Lutescens I've raised required only four months from planting. I've not kept any planted longer than one season so I have no idea what may germinate later. I haven't room nor patience for that long keeping tables of dirt. What you see was out of the ground in literally 120 days from planting.

Thank you. So, a fair chance they'll repeat? (We say in Aus that a seed planted in August (winter) should flower by Christmas if it's going to repeat.)

I live in a cool coastal climate. Here, Banksiaes "repeat" two to four times a year, literally. They will begin flowering, we'll have a short heat spell and they stop, then it cools and they start flowering again. But, then, I have apples which flowered all summer long last year. The seeds germinated quickly, but they took several years to flower.

Thank you. Sounds like they're confused...

I grew up hearing this rose- widely grown in the southern U.S.- called 'Lady Banksia'. From what I can tell, this is a fairly common synonym in the U.S.
