Golden Grevillea is most commonly found growing in lowland swampy areas, river flats and open woodland. The tree is slim and up to 7m tall. The leaves are deeply divided and fern-like, and the silky white undersides give the tree a silvery appearance, particularly on a windy day. During the winter months, this Grevillea produces masses of bright orange bottle-brush type flowers. The flowers are 10 – 20cm long, and carry large quantities of nectar, making them a favourite of honey-eating birds and insects, as well as a popular bush tucker.
The nectar has a pleasant sweet taste . . .
