Grevillea "Clearview David"

Created by Mr W Cane at his "Clearview" Nursery, Maffra, Victoria. The parentage is asserted to be Grevillea rosmarinifolia A. cunn. sens. lat. X Grevillea 'Crosbie Morrison'. Involvement of the former is almost certain but that of the latter has not been confirmed at this stage.

Apparently an erect shrub to 2.5m high; leaves 1.5-3cm long and .5-2mm broad, narrow linear and sometimes becoming subulate toward the fine pungent points; leaf margins recurved; perianth tube 8-13mm long, about 2mm diameter, moderately silky hairy, limb about 2mm diameter, moderately silky hairy; ovary stipitate, densely silky villous; style 12-15mm long with scattered hairs on the lower half.

Grevillea 'Clearview David' differs from G. rosmarinifolia a. cunn. sens. lat. chiefly in its silky hairy perianth, stipitate and densely silky villous ovary, sparsely hairy style and in its profuse flowering habit.

Throughout the year unusual pink / red waxy flowers are produced in short and dense racemes, and the early spring flowering (March-April) is the most abundant.

Grevillea Clearview David is an excellent potted plant or full earth to make dense bushes, fears extreme frosts, loves direct sunlight, not disdaining the partial shade. It needs an acidic substrate with excellent drainage fearing water stagnation.
