Creative natives

I’ve been meaning to take soem snapshots of a garden at the bottom of our street which has mastly natives in it. Today, I took the time to do it. The banksias around here are all red, except for this one, which has yellow blooms:

Another native in the bunch which quite impressed me reminds me of a bookmark. The red blooms have a kind of tasselly thing that they do. It also has smooth gumnut-like seed pods which grow directly on the stems at junctions (you can see some out-of-focus ones in the background):
