Hi Sue, it is a delicate little flower on this one.
Do you know which one it is, Christine ? – I don’t recall one quite so pink … Just lovely.
it appears to be Grevillea Rosmarinifolia – rosy pink and cream. There is an astounding range, I was beginning to think it wasn’t a grevillea after all, but a type of pea. So may different flower and leaf shapes. But this one has the leaves and the flower description of Grevillea Rosmarinifolia. There is a dwarf variety too, and they come in different colours. 🙂
Well it’s lovely !
Grevilleas flower for so much of the year, really good value. Love this one too.
I’m not familiar with it, but it’s quite pretty.
Hi Kayti, it is a local native.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grevillea … is a diverse genus of about 360 species of evergreen flowering plants in the protea family Proteaceae, native to rainforest and more open habitats in Australia, New Guinea, New Caledonia, Indonesia and Sulawesi. It was named in honour of Charles Francis Greville. The species range from prostrate shrubs less than 50 cm (20 in) tall to trees 35 m (115 ft) tall. Common names include grevillea, spider flower, silky oak, bottle brush and toothbrush plant.
does it attact bees? It may be a low growing plant I used to know.
Bees and birds, Kayti, especially the honeyeaters. 🙂
