Star-leaf Grevillea

Star leaf Grevillea 1

We were wandering through the botanical garden section of Kings Park recently and noticed this Star-leaf Grevillea (Grevillea asteriscosa). The small red flowers don’t look very impressive at a quick glance, but are worth a closer look.

This plant is native to the southern wheatbelt area, several hundred kilometres inland from Perth. Its flowering season is reported to be May or Jul to Nov.
