ORIGIN: Grevillea 'Poorinda Beulah' is said to be a seedling resulting from Grevillea 'Poorinda Blondie'. Cultivar received by the Authority: 21 October 1975. Applicant: Mr L Hodge.

DESCRIPTION: It is a dense shrub growing to a height of about 1.5m by about 2m wide. The leaves are often up to 100m long and are usually lobed. The width of the leaves at their widest is about 30mm. New growth is an attractive bronze colour whilst the upper surface of the older leaves is dark shiny green. The underside is covered with dense silky hairs. The flowers are of the "toothbrush" type and are borne terminally on short branches. Occasionally flowers are produced on the stem opposite a leaf. The perianth is smoky pink with a prominent style which graduates to yellow at the tip. Individual flowers are aobut 10mm long and the styles 25mm long.

DIAGNOSIS: This cultivar is different from its stated parent in leaf shape and colour of style.

The perianth colour of both cultivars is the same, however the styles vary from pink in Grevillea 'Poorinda Beulah' to yellow in Grevillea 'Poorinda Blondie'.
