Grevillea • Family Proteaceae
The Grevillea is another one of Australia’s popular flowering plants, with about 250 species, ranging from prostrate shrubs of less than 0.5 metres in height to trees that can be 35 metres tall.

Some of the nectar baring flowers of the Grevillea species were sucked for their sweet nectar by local indigenous people, a favourite treat for aboriginal children. Some blossoms were collected and kneaded in a coolamon. The flowers were then removed and the residue was mixed with water to produce a sweet drink.

Native to Australia and New Caledonia, some of the more common names include Grevillea, Spider Flower, Silky Oak and Toothbrush.
