Botanical Information:

Family: Proteaceae
Genus: Grevillea
Hybrid: Grevillea banksii × Grevillea bipinnatifida

Meaning of name:
Grevillea, after Charles Francis Greville (1749–1809), an English patron of botany and a founder of the Horticultural Society in 1804
banksii, after Sir Joseph Banks (1743–1820), an English naturalist and botanist who accompanied (then) Lieutenant James Cook on the Endeavour in 1768–1771, and who did much to bring Australian botany to the European world (Grevillea banksii was first described by the Scottish botanist Robert Brown and named in honour after Banks)
bipinnatifida is from Latin: bi, two + pinna, feather + findo, to split. A reference to the leaf shape

Grevillea banksii × Grevillea bipinnatifida would have a leaf partway between G. banksii and G. bipinnatifida in shape.

The Grevillea ‘Robyn Gordon’ cultivar is very popular in Australia and overseas for its attractive foliage and deep red flowers. It was selected by David Gordon in Queensland for its prolific and year-round flowering. While released to the nursery trade in 1968, the plant was registered in 1973 with the name ‘Robyn Gordon’ in memory of David and Dorothy Gordon’s daughter who had died aged 16 in 1969.

‘Robyn Gordon’ is a shrub reaching 2m in height and 3m in width (6.5 ft by 10 ft).

The cultivar ‘Superb’ (no. 135 in our collection) is also a hybrid of G. banksii and G. bipinnatifida (bred by Merv Hodge), but has a more apricot orange tinge to the flowers.

This print features in the Grevillea Collection 1 diptych and the Grevillea Collection 3 triptych.
