G. longistyla x johnsonii

Grevillea 'Long John' is a dense upright shrub growing 2 m to 3 m tall and 2 m to 3 m wide. The leaves are up to 25 cm long and deeply lobed with narrow linear lobes about 2 mm to 3 mm wide, giving the foliage an appearance like pine needles. Ball shaped clusters of pink red flowers are produced from September through to April. The cultivar originated as a seedling grown and propagated in Queensland by Rodger Elliot. It may be a hybrid between Grevillea longistyla and Grevillea johnsonii. It was accepted for registration with Australian Cultivar Registration Authority (ACRA) in January 2007. This plant is sometimes sold as a Grevillea 'Elegance'.
