Queensland grower Richard Tomkin has produced a spectacular new range of hybrid grevilleas. Although not available to the public for another two years, they promise to be the best grevillea varieties of the future.

  • Grevillea ‘Billy Bonkers’, named after Richard’s pet dog, has metallic pink flowers that bloom all year. Growth is around 1m (3′) tall by 2-3m (6-10′) wide.
  • Grevillea ‘Lana Marie’ is named after Richard’s wife. It has deep pink, cascading flowers. Growth is 1.5 m (5′) tall by 2-3m (6-10′) wide.
  • Grevillea ‘Jester’ has bright orange/red perfumed flowers. It grows 3m (10′) tall by 4m (13′) wide.
  • Grevillea ‘Geisha’ flowers like Robyn Gordon. It has white flowers with a pale pink blush through the centre that bloom all year. Growth is 2-3m (6-10′) tall by 3m (10′) wide.
