Grevillea fililoba (Spider Net Grevillea) - Small, upright and graceful shrub to 5 feet tall with soft, fine gray-green leaves that are slightly hairy with spidery clusters of reddish-pink flowers that form at the ends of the branches off and on throughout the year. Plant in full sun in a warm site; sensitive to temperatures below 25 F. This plant was previously described as a subspecies of Grevillea thelemanniana (G. ssp. thelemanniana fililoba) but has more recently been elevated to species level. This species is from a winter wet and summer hot and dry area east of Geraldton in Western Australia. The specific epithet fililoba is from the Latin word 'filum' meaning "a thread" and 'lobus' meaning "a lobe" in reference to the fine dissected foliage.  The information presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations of it growing in our nursery crops, as well as in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they include cultural information that would aid others in growing Grevillea fililoba.
