“* Grevillea 'Superb' *
by Carolyn Connolly.
A delicately beautiful blossom on the stunning Australian native flower, Grevillea 'Superb', which is a cultivated hybrid between Grevillea banksii and Grevillea bipinnatifida... This plant is part of the Proteaceae family...
"Grevillea 'Superb': Shrub which can reach about 1.5 metres in height by 2 metres wide. Large apricot-orange racemes of flowers. G. 'Superb' differs from most other similar hybrids in that it was a deliberate cross rather than a chance seedling.

Captured mid afternoon, in early autumn, on the 7th of March 2010...
