Banksia Ericifolia

schaggyJanuary 13, 2009

Hi, I work at a nursery and I recently noticed the interesting trunk on the banksia ericifolia, and was curious if it could be made into a bonsai? Are you able to prune back branches almost to the trunk if the plant currently stands about 3 feet tall? Please help me because I am rather unfamiliar with this species and have not been able to find much info. regarding it.

Look at, but remember that the larger the flowers the less suitable for bonsai the shrub will be.
