Shrub to 5 m or more tall. Leaves pinnately divided into deep linear lobes. Flower clusters cylindrical, to 20 cm or so long. Flowers pink with cream styles. Generally larger plant with longer flower clusters than 'Misty Pink'. Probable hybrid, g. banksii (red) _ g. whyteana (Mundubbera form), which arose as a chance seedling in the garden of Mrs Win Bristow, Brisbane, in 1975. A range of about 50 cultivars in the Poorinda series has been produced by Leo Hodge of Vic. While a number of these have no particular merit, the following are useful and widely available.
