Taken from the garden in our compound (2008).
Ranging from small shrubs to large trees, grevilleas are evergreen plants, with needle-like to narrow leaves or ferny pinnate foliage, usually in whorls around the stems. The flowers, which are fragrant in some species, are arranged in three basic forms: spider-like, toothbrush-like, and large brushes. Their flowerheads, which open at varying times, are composed of many small flowers, usually in shades of yellow, orange, or red, with long filamentous styles.
