Common names used for Hakea species

Note that these names may be very regional in their use and the same common name can often mean different species in different areas of Australia e.g. corkwood and needlewood are general terms referring to whichever of a number of possible species is found in the area concerned. One of the corkwoods (H. divaricata) is even referred to as Needlewood in Western Australia. Fan Hakea or Fan-leaved Hakea is apparently used interchangeably for H. baxteri, H. brownii or H. flabellifolia. This list is not meant to be exhaustive and nor is it meant to be definitive in the spelling or capitalization of the common names since this too is a contentious area.
