Grevillea 'Poorinda Adorning'

ORIGIN: Grevillea 'Poorinda Adorning' is said to be a seedling resulting from a form of Grevillea juniperina from New South Wales. Cultivar received by the Authority: November 1968. Applicant: Mr L Hodge.

DESCRIPTION: It is a low spreading shrub growing to a height of about 1m. The pungent leaves are long and narrow and about 25 mm long by 2-3mm wide. The upper surface is shiny green whilst the underside is covered with dense silky hairs. The very woolly flowers are formed into dense clusters and are produced terminally on short side laterals. The perianth is bright pink and about 16mm long and the styles are about 25mm long.

DIAGNOSIS: This cultivar is different from most forms of Grevillea juniperina as it has bright pink flowers instead of the usual for the species of red, orange or yellow flowers.

COLOUR CODING: RHS Colour Chart 1966

Perianth and Style: red orange 52A
