DescripciĆ³n

Unknown species. Likely a garden escapee as it does not resemble any native grevillea species within the area.

It is a shrub about 1.5 metres tall and 3 metres wide. The style is long, pale green and appears somewhat hairy. The pollen presenter is green and the perianth is white. Young follicle/fruit is green. Leaves are glossy and hairless with thick veins and small, sharp points at the tips, like Grevillea buxifolia.

DescripciĆ³n

I did not expect this species to be so tiny! Had it not been for its cute little pink inflorescences and the observations of fellow naturalists, I would not have seen this wonderful little grevillea.
