Grevillea 'Poorinda Pink Coral'

ORIGIN: This cultivar is assumed to have resulted from a cross between a north-east Victorian form of Grevillea juniperina and G. victoriae. It can be expected to reach a height of about 2m. First dated specimen received by the Authority 21 October 1975, however a much earlier undated specimen was lodged with the Melbourne Herbaruim prior to 1972.

DESCRIPTION: The leaves, which are pungent, are approximately 3cm long and about 4mm wide. The upper surface is shiny with a prominent mid-rib, whilst the underside has a dense covering of short silky hairs which give a grey to white appearance. The clusters of coral pink flowers are produced on the ends of short branchlets. Individual flowers are about 1.3cm long with styles being up to about 2cm long.

DIAGNOSIS: This cultivar differs from Grevillea 'Poorinda Queen' in that it is a smaller shrub and its flowers are coral pink in colour.
