Grevillea 'Red Hooks'is a rounded vigorous shrub growing to 3m high. The leaves are pinnate with narrow lobes to 3 cm long by 4-5m across, with more or less horizontal branches. The bright green leaves are about 15 cm long, with narrow lobes to about 2 or 3 cm long. The plant produced bright red toothbrush-shaped flower clusters for most of the year peaking in winter and spring. The cultivar is suspected to be a hybrid between G. longifolia and G. tetragonoloba. It was accepted for registration with Australian Cultivar Registration Authority (ACRA) in October 1992.
