Not frost hardy, better for coastal and subtropical regions, and very tolerant of humid climates. One of our most popular Grevilleas.

APPEARANCE : Unconventional-looking grevillea, a large shrub with long smooth-edged oval leaves and rounded deep orange looped flowers through the year, which stand upright.
ORIGIN :G venusta originates in central QLD, around Rockhampton; G glossadenia from further north in the Atherton tablelands of FNQ.
