We use Grevillea in the flower shop, but I have never seen such a gorgeous colour!

Mine is just about to come into flower - I cant wait and the bees love it too

Dear RO, Not only is this such a wonderful flower. Not only is this such a striking colour. Not only is this such a professional composition. It is perfect.

Gorgeous is right!! Beautiful!!

The flowers are so unusual yet beautiful at the same time. We grow a different species of Grevillea and the flowers are not as pretty as yours.

A gorgeous bloom, and you have captured it just beautifully.

How gorgeous is that? I had a grevillea in my last garden and didn't bring it with me... I think you inspired me to buy another one. Thank you!

I'm a great fan of Grevillea - I've got 'Canberra Gem' and would like another one. I love the flowers - and so do the bees which is a plus.

I am not familiar with this flower. It is very interesting. I love the color!

Am I the only one who looked at those blooms and thought "Mmmm, I must get some prawns"?

That is beautiful. I am ignorant and will have to go away and look up Grevillea. The flowers look like a butterfly's proboscis unfurling.

Really nice photography. I like overall collection and this one in particular.
