Late Spring is the season for the most spectacular of the Grevilleas (G. robusta. see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grevillea_robusta). I saw this one in the Domain Gardens in Melbourne and was delighted to be able to take a close-up of the flowers on a low hanging branch.
As you can see this particular Grevillea grows into a substantial tree. The one we planted in our garden has a long way to go!
