Grampians Grevillea

Grampians Grevillea

On a club trip to the Grampians last weekend we visited the Botanic Gardens at Halls Gap. The gardens are in the town near the tennis courts. While they have suffered some damage from flooding it is still an interesting place to visit. One plant that caught my attention was Grevillea gariwerdensis. It only grows in the Grampians, usually in low moist heath areas on sandy soils.

Another plant seen in the gardens was Rock Banksia Banksia saxicola. 

This banksia is found in the Grampians and at Wilsons Promontory.
