Two new Grevilleas

19 Sep 2022 11:01 AM | Anonymous

Two new Grevillea species have recently been described by Peter Olde, leader of the Grevillea Study Group. Both species, Grevillea gilmourii and G. milleriana are related closely to G. macleayana which occurs in the Nowra–Ulladulla region. Of great interest to us is the naming of G. milleriana which was discovered on Maddens Plains, just south of Sydney. This amazing discovery was quite serendipitous as it occurs in a perched swamp. Only one plant was found but the discovery confirmed the existence of the plant that has been seen and searched for much earlier (around 2000) but not collected.

Stay tuned for more details in future blogs or in upcoming issues of our newsletter.
