Flower of The Day Challenge: Grevillea

In my part of the country of Australia, we are enjoying a spring that sees a bursting of colour on various native trees. Most prolific in the bush is Grevillea Robusta, more commonly known as Silky Oak. This grows wild as the seeds are spread easily by the wind as well as birds eating it.

The Grevillea that is most widely grown in the domestic garden is called ‘Robyn Gordon’.

The Robusta has a profusion of bright golden flowers whereas, I could probably say, most other grevilleas are a pale pink or on the red spectrum.

I have attached some pictures below. I hope you enjoy them.

These were all taken in Newtown in Sydney on the 1st February this year. Newtown is known for its artistic, eclectic diverse community. I love it… That’s why I live here.
