Dryandra (family Proteaceae) A genus of small trees and shrubs that have narrow, toothed leaves. The flowers are yellow to red with a conspicuous pistil, borne in dense heads with a basal involucre of bracts. The woody seed capsules are held vertically at the base, and the seed is sometimes retained on the plant following the winter flowering. The genus is similar to Banksia. There are about 55 species, endemic to southwestern Australia.
