Grevillea_miqueliana.jpg (56942 bytes)Grevillea miqueliana: is a member of the Proteaceae family and is sometimes known as the Oval-leaf Grevillea.

Grevillea miqueliana is an erect to spreading shrub that may reach a height of 2.5 metres. In our garden, on the frosty Northern Tablelands of New South Wales, three year old plants have reached a height of 1.5 metres.

The leaves are oval, up to 60 millimetres long, dull green on top with dense silvery hairs on the under surface.

Red flowers are carried in pendulous clusters on the ends of branches in winter and spring. The flowers attract honeyeaters. Flowers are similar in appearance to the blooms of Grevillea victoriae.

Some botanists have included Grevillea miqueliana in the Grevillea victoriae complex. We feel that the Oval-leaf Grevillea should be maintained as a separate species. This is our horticultural rather than botanical opinion.

Grevillea miqueliana is found in north-eastern Victoria.

Grevillea miqueliana has both attractive foliage and flowers. This would be an interesting addition to a native garden bed or bird-friendly garden.

Propagate from cuttings.
