GREVILLEAS

In the previous post, my Magnolia photos were right next to some Grevillea images in my Photo Library.

I don’t think I’ve seen any of these Australian evergreen plants in my western suburb, but I do have some lovely shots of them from past home locations.

Grevillias are a diverse and variable range of Australian plants, from large, upright trees to scrambling ground covers.  The majority are medium shrubs with flowers resembling spiders and often appear in long toothbrush-like clusters.

Here’s the 4 images (below).  They were found in a small island of native plants in the middle of a suburban road.   They were such a surprising sight and were no doubt planted by an environmentally aware local council.

They attract birds in great numbers, but I imagine they’d be too big to grow in a pot on my balcony????
