  • Title:  Grevillea baileyana, syn. G. pinnatifida, White oak, Findlay’s silky oak
  • Description:  A tropical species from Northern Queensland, this unusual Grevillea is surprisingly adaptable and will grown as far south as Coff’s Harbour in New South Wales. A tree of 25 m in its warm rainforest habitat, it is more usually a handsome, densely foliaged, small tree of 8 m to 10 m under cultivation. It is occasionally used in street plantings but is subject to wind damage in exposed situations. The juvenile leaves are variable in form, but usually comprised of 3 to 9 deeply cut lobes. The adult foliage is entire and particularly handsome, being a deep glossy green on the upper surfaces while the undersides are covered in dense, silken golden-brown or silver hairs. It is used in floral arrangements to striking effect and trees are grown specifically for this purpose in some areas. Massed, erect panicles of creamy-white flowers are produced over spring and summer. Free-draining, good soils are preferred, while either sun or part shade is acceptable and frost-free positions are essential. Staking in wind-prone situations is recommended.
