Grevillea is a flowering evergreen plant native to Australia and is a genus of the Proteaceae family. Grevillea has a number of common names that include Spider Flower, Spiderman, Silky Oak, Bush Lollies and Bush Toothbrush.
Grevillea was named after Charles Francis Greville, a British antiquarian and collector.
The sweet nectar from the grevillea flower was enjoyed by Aborigines who shook out the pollen and mixed it with water. We do not recommend trying this, as many varieties of grevillea contain the toxin ‘cyanide’.

Grevillea is available in the wholesale flower markets as a cut flower and is sold in wraps of 10 stems. The stem length generally varies from 60cm – 80cm tall.
