Grevillea 'Pink Midget' - Short and spreading dense-growing plant to 1-2 feet tall by 2 to 3 feet wide with narrow 1 inch long lanceolate-shaped leaves that are medium green above and lighter green and tomentosa below. At any time in the year can appear the unusual light pink flowers arranged at the end of the stems in round clusters. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and water occasionally to very little - better flowering reported when irrigated. Hardy to moderate frost and listed for most gardening conditions in Australia - little testing has been done in the U.S. so any feedback from our customers about it would be welcome. This plant was discovered as a spontaneous seedling hybrid under a mature plant of Grevillea leiophylla in the garden of Mervyn Hodge at Logan Reserve, Queensland in 1999. The likely pollen parent was thought to be Grevillea humilis ssp. maritima, as it was growing nearby. The plant was selected for its dense compact habit and its continuous production of flowers. The plant received Plant Breeders Rights in Australia in 2001 as described in Plant Varieties Journal 2002 Volume 15 Number 4. We have been growing this great little plant since 2009.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Grevillea 'Pink Midget'.
