Flowers are usually arranged in groups in the leaf axils and resemble those of the other genera, especially the grevillea. Hakeas have woody fruit, which distinguishes them from the grevilleas that are non-woody fruits that release seeds as they Mature. Hakeas are in every state of Australia with the highest species diversity is found in South-West Western Australia.


1. Description. (Описание)

Plants in the genus Hakea shrubs or small trees. Some species have flat leaves, while other leaves are needle-like, in this case they are sometimes divided, and sometimes have a groove on the bottom surface. The flowers are arranged in groups in the leaf axils and are surrounded by bracts when in Bud. The flowers have both male and female parts and are borne on a short stalk called pedicel. Sepals and petals together are called tepals, form a curved tube, which sometimes crack as the flower develops. Style is more than tepal tube and bent until its tip came out. When released, the tip of the style and pollen-presenter. The fruit of hakeas, woody and persists on the plant until burned in forest fires or until the plant dies. Then the fruit splits open to release two winged seeds.

Many species of hakea similar types of grevillea but differ from them by the presence of persistent, woody fruit. Those grevilleas is not constant and not woody. The upper and lower surfaces of the leaves of hakeas similar unlike in the grevilleas, and ovary and style glabrous hairy grevilleas.

Hakeas are popular ornamental plants in gardens in Australia, and in many places, such as grevilleas and banksias. Several hybrids and cultivars, including Burrendong beauty. They are best grown in beds of light soil, watering, and well drained.

Some showy Western species, such as Hakea multilineata, H. francisiana and H. bucculenta, require grafting onto hardy stock, such as Hakea salicifolia for growing in more humid climates since they are sensitive to showersnot.

Many species, especially in the Eastern Australian species differ in hardiness, to the point they become stunted. Hakea gibbosa, H. sericea, H. drupacea and H. suaveolens previously was a weed in South Africa Hakea Laurina has become naturalized in the Eastern States of Australia and is considered an environmental weed, and Hakea salicifolia, Hakea gibbosa and Hakea sericea are invasive weeds in New Zealand.
