Grevillea

From this mornings walk.

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. 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. 🙂

    1. 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.
