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 on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated 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 fililoba.
