It does look like it.

I'm not sure. It is odd that all the leaves are in 3-leaflet groups. The older parts should have some 5-leaflet groups. I would think.

Banksia? Not.
Did you mean a Lady Bank’s rose - Rosa banksiae?

Hi Nery!
What made you think banksia, Nery? Banksia leaves vary considerably between species but I have never seen 1 like those. Plus a bush of that size would have old cones. I have never seen a cascading banksia either.

I agree the trailing effect looks like a Rosa banksiae but from my memory, the leaves do not at all.

Sorry guys, I meant lady Banks rose.

Sure could be, bobthescgardene. Looks like the trailing photo in your link too as well as the leaves. I enlarged Nery's 1st photo but can't tell if stems are square.

Nery, compare these attributes to your bush. (from your link, bobthescgardene)

BTW bobthescgardene, was there supposed to be an r on your name?
