Which flower is this? (28)


According to my book, this flower is not terribly common, not very long-lived, not very fruitful and is prone to infestation by scale-insect.

Do you know what it is?

Hi DPC!

It certainly is some kind of Grevillea. Well done.

But, which one??

If you have loads of time to waste, and loads of broad band, you could here, click on all the Grevillea images (of which there are loads) and try and work it out!!!

and you could cross reference a search on this site for flora in the Blue Mountains. (Grevillea is in the PROTEACEAE family)
