Grevillea_Winpara_Gem.jpg (47714 bytes)Grevillea Winpara Gem: is a member of the Proteaceae family and is a hybrid whose parents are said to be G. thelemanniana and either G. argyrophylla or G. olivacea.

Grevillea Winpara Gem grows into a dense shrub reaching a height of two metres. Grey-green leaves are about six centimetres long, lobed with four or five segments. Flowers appear from autumn to spring. Buds are pink, open to deep red and age to orange. The blooms are held in large racemes and appear on older wood. Honeyeaters are partial to the nectar-filled flowers. The blooms are an outstanding feature of this hybrid with their size and unusual colour.

Grevillea Winpara Gem would make a colourful and bird attracting screening and hedge plant.

We have many specimens in our garden. Some are over ten years old.

Grevillea Winpara Gem appeared in a garden on the Winpara property, in Western Australia, and was registered in 1984.

Propagate from cuttings that produce roots readily and rapidly.

Grevillea Winpara Gold is similar in all respects except that the flowers are pale golden in colour and is just as hardy and colourful as G. Winpara Gold.
