Popular Types of Grevillea

These taller Grevillea species are perfect for those who wish to introduce an iconic Australian look into their landscape with the added benefit of shade and a vertical visual appeal. Adding Grevillea to your landscape ensures that you have a majestic, year-round focal point that adds vertical interest while also serving as a sanctuary for various native birds and pollinators.

Silky Oak

By far the most iconic among the Grevillea, the ‘Silky Oak’ (Grevillea robusta) can soar to a magnificent 22 metres. It’s not just the height that stands out, but also its fern-like leaves that shimmer in shades of medium to light green on top and silvery hues on the underside. Its bold clusters of yellowish-orange flowers that bloom in spring are a sight to behold. Ideal for larger gardens, Silky Oak offers a haven for native birds.

Forest Rambler

This smaller Grevillea is perfect for those looking for a more modest height. Typically growing to a 2-3m shrub with soft pink flowers, the ‘forest rambler’ is an excellent choice for urban gardens where space might be a constraint.

Growing Grevilleas

While Grevilleas are fairly low-maintenance, they do have specific requirements. Generally, they prefer full sun, well-drained soil, and benefit from occasional pruning to encourage bushier growth and more blooms. For a step-by-step guide on nurturing your Grevillea to its full potential, Garden Express has a detailed Grevillea Growing Guide.
