Grevillea 'Little Thicket' is a shrub growing to about 0.5 m to 1m tall and 1 m wide. It forms 'thickets'by suckering from roots, with new shoots appearing at intervals of about 30 cm from the main plant. The leaves are narrow and grow to about 2 cm long and 3 mm wide. The flowers are pinkish yellow and are produced in small clusters. It was originally thought that 'Little Thicket' is a naturally occurring form of Grevillea obtusiflora from near Braidwood, N.S.W. It was accepted for registration with Australian Cultivar Registration Authority (ACRA) in March 1979. The Australian National Botanic Gardens web site reports that some botanists ,now consider that it may be a natural hybrid between Grevillea arenaria subsp. arenaria and Grevillea lanigera".
