Descriptions of Registered Cultivars
Applicant: Phillipa Gibian, Dural, NSW
Date (when first selected or introduced): 1988
Origin: Wild selection
Description: Open shrub, 1m (h) x 1m (w)
Flowers: Deep pink
Foliage Colour: Dark Green
Colour Coding RHS Colour Chart 1995 :
Perianth and Style: Red Purple Group 72a
Leaves (upper surface): Green Group 137a
Comparators: Grevillea sericea, G. oleoides
Reasons for distinctiveness: Thought to be a Grevillea sericea hybrid, possibly with G. oleoides which also occurs in the area. The differences are in the deepness of the pink in the flower colour and the leaf characteristics. The very best-coloured G. sericea comes nowhere near it. The leaves are much wider than G. sericea. The leaf is a much darker green than G. sericea. Grevillea sericea can be quite variable in leaf, and for a while it was thought it could possibly be a new species however it does not set seed suggesting it may be sterile hybrid.
It has been in the applicant’s garden since it was first collected.
