I have not been able to identify this grevillea. Can’t remember where, in Melbourne, I photographed it. The leaves should provide a clue to somebody!Australian native flower. Photographed in Melbourne, Australia.Family: Proteaceae.

Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.
Nice photo Bette. It looks like the early stages of the Grevillea Lanigera. I have a few photos of this one in my Aussie Flowers gallery or you can Google that name to verify.
Thanks Michael. Had a look at your lovely Aussie Flowers. I’m pretty sure that this is not lanigera, because of the leaves. Lanigera (akar Woolly Grevillea) has very different leaves. I have one in one of my Native Flower folders.

Wonderful work Bette..nice DOF.
Thanks very much,Warren.
Thank you very much, Warren.
I just realized I have two photos under that name but their leaves are quite different. More research needed. Otherwise we could just call them ‘Aussie beauties’ !
I will get to the bottom of it somehow! :)
No. I will get to the bottom of this, somehow :)
Beautiful capture, Bette,,,very crisp and love the colours!
Thanks Dorothy! Quite a few grevilleas favour these colours :)
Thanks for that lovely comment, Dorothy.
I’m no help with IDs, but I do like the candy cane look of these beauties! Excellent clarity and detail.
“Candy can” is a good description of the flowers! Thanks Celeste.
“Candy cane” – that’s a good description! Thanks Celeste.
these look good enough to eat! they look like some fancy sweets ;)Australian flora and fauna are so wonderful and so unlike anywhere else.
You are not alone in thinking that – see Celeste’s comment, above! Glad that you like our flora (and fauna) Irina!
