Grevillea Knight

Grevillea

Commemorating Charles Francis Greville (1749–1809), correspondent of Robert Brown and Vice-President and Treasurer of the (later Royal) Horticultural Society.

Shrubs or occasionally trees. Leaves alternate, simple or divided up to 3 times. Flower clusters with 1-many pairs of flowers, the clusters 1-sided, cylindrical to globose. Flowers irregular with knob-like tips in bud. Tepals 4, separating at least partially at flowering. Fruit a thin- or thick-walled follicle, rarely a nut; seeds 1-2, sometimes strongly winged.

Grevillea, probably the third largest genus in Australia after Eucalyptus and Acacia, has always been a popular native plant genus for the garden, grown for the interesting foliage and bird-attracting flowers. The numerous species and cultivars and hybridisation can make identification extremely difficult. Species display several flower forms: terminal and upright (cylindrical, ovoid or obovoid in outline); terminal and hanging; one-sided and toothbrush-like; few-flowered and spider-like with protruding styles; soft and feathery, etc.

A history of the genus in cultivation and full horticultural background for each species is given in Olde & Marriott (1994-95).

320-340 species, mostly Australian (1 Tas, 3 New Guinea, 1 in Sulawesi, Indonesia, 3 in New Caledonia).

Grevillea and Hakea are notoriously difficult to distinguish. However, Hakea has thick woody capsules of 2 wood types and many of the species in the genus have cylindrical leaves, while the fruits of Grevillea are generally thinner-walled and of 1 wood type.

Seed collected from the wild; semi-hardwood and hardwood cuttings; grafting.

Cultivars

The following is a selection of the most commonly available cultivars. It should be noted that many cultivars have been released without necessarily having great horticultural merit, and parents of hybrids may be ornamentally superior to their hybrid selections. A great service would be done to Australian horticulture if commercially available cultivars were fully described and classified into formal cultivar groups, thus aiding identification and an assessment of the merit of new introductions.

A 'Dot Brown' PVJ 10(2)56.
