The Showy Grevillea WFF6173

Famous as an attraction for many nectar-feeding birds like lorikeets and honeyeaters, I, like many Australians, feature these showy, flowering shrubs in their bush gardens.
Most of the 360 species in the family Proteaceae are endemic to Australia, with only three species growing in New Guinea. Grevilleas occur in most habitats, although few grow in alpine areas, in swamps or saline soils. I have heard them referred to as "bush lollies" by Aboriginal people.
