Hakea victoria, commonly referred to as the Royal Hakea, is a distinctive plant native to Western Australia, particularly in the Fitzgerald River National Park.

Renowned for its striking foliage, this shrub showcases a unique, waxy pattern of orange and green, which not only offers a visual spectacle but also serves a protective purpose against the intense sunlight. Its ability to withstand salt-laden winds and its preference for well-drained soils make it an attractive choice for coastal landscaping. Additionally, the Royal Hakea’s vividly colored, lance-shaped leaves and its display of cream-colored, fragrant flowers during blooming season make it a treasured specimen for plant enthusiasts and a vital source of nectar for local wildlife.
