Closely related to the genus Hakea, the genus gives its name to the subfamily Grevilleoideae. The brightly coloured, petal-less flowers consist of a calyx tube that splits into 4 lobes with long styles. They are good bird-attracting plants, honeyeaters in particular are common visitors. They are also used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including the Dryandra Moth and the Pieris rapae or the Small White.
The cultivar illustrated here is Grevillea "Lollypops". This grevillea has numerous deep pink flowers. It grows to around 1.5m by 1.5m and attracts numerous nectar feeding birds. It requires soil with reasonable drainage and is hardy to light frosts. Prune hard at least once a year.
