Hakea sericea - Silky Needlebush has needle leaves
less than 35 mm long.
Although by far the most abundant and widespread Needlebush on the Peninsula (and
ranking in the top 10 atlassed Proteas), Ha seri is not much more widespread or
abundant than our other Needlebushes on the Peninsula.
Ha seri is the only Needlebush recorded north of 34°S to date. However, these appear
to be scattered records. The densest populations are at Little Lions Head, Constantia Nek,
Skoorsteenkop, Chapmans Peak, and Spitskop (south of Silvermine). Smaller infestations
occur on Lakeside Ridge and Klawer Valley, with odd patches elsewhere.
Seasonal data are lacking for this species from January, February and June.
