A New Grevillea







Splashes of fresh pinky-red are brightening the garden, our new grevillea "Robyn Gordon" is in flower! We currently have five different grevilleas (Australian natives), our smallest being Gingin Gem which is a ground cover plant, about 20cm or 8" tall. The other four types will grow to 1 to 2 metres tall, with  flower colours ranging from pink/yellow to red.




We found this pretty grevillea on a coastal walk at the village where my parents-in-love live. This particular shrub was only about one metre tall.







The two developing grevillea flowers above and fully opened one below are on a shrub in my parents-in-love front yard, this plant is about 4 metres tall.




Grevilleas vary in plant structure and size and flower shape and colour. Some grevilleas varieties grow into trees
 30 metres tall, yet you can identify all of them as grevilleas by their unique flower structure.

Beautiful images, Karen. Grevilleas are so beautiful. I love the way they unfold. I had 6 at my old house (I planted them to attract the Rainbow Lorikeets). My favourite was Robyn Gordon :)

I love visiting your blog everyday to see what your garden has in store for me..:) I can relate to you in so many ways. Like for instance peeking at every plant to see if there's a new leaf, bud......Your gladiola post bought so many memories for me.
I so miss not having a garden here...:(
