Grevillea Question I have never seen a Grevillea that oozes as much personality as this one did.
Brushes around 15cms long could be longer..

So Beautiful.. No Name as I looked every where.

Mary-Anne, does that grevillea grow in... um, how do I describe it... sort of like wide layers? There are some growing at a place near us that I have been wanting to find out what they are and the flowers are the same. These ones grow sort of like a groundcover - flat and wide - but not on the ground - the bottom 'layer' of branches starts about half metre from the ground then there is a small gap before another 'layer' of branches, etc. The ones near us are about 1.5m high so far. It is difficult to explain, I'll have to see if I can find a picture similar.

Its not the best I took this one when we first got there a wider lens..

I remember it was only a little taller than me which is kind of short by your standards Very Happy
So yes that would be the right height that you mentioned.
And it looks like the branches are layered..

Could be it, it is hard to say but I'd love to find out what one it is so I could get one. Trouble is finding room for it as it is over 2m wide and looks only half grown.

It's nowhere near what it was. The poor place took a real battering in the storms. I was quite shocked at the state of parts of it.

Yes Its a shame I was talking to one of the workers there and he was telling me they have just got it looking good after the last storm that was when we went about 2 weeks ago.. Sad
