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.
‘Superb’ was a deliberate cross by Merv Hodge, who used the white flowering form of Grevillea banksii rather than the more common red flowering form. It is a compact shrub reaching 1 to 2 m high and wide (3 to 6.5 ft). G. banksii hails from Queensland and G. bipinnatifida is from Western Australia.
The cultivar ‘Robyn Gordon’ (no. 149 in our collection), selected by David Gordon from a chance seedling, is also a hybrid of G. banksii and G. bipinnatifida, but has deep red flowers.
