IDM KwaZulu-Natal - Scarlet Silky Oak - Grevillia banksia

A solid black dot indicates where the species is found.

Grevillia banksia - Scarlet Silky Oak has been atlassed at Port Edward - does it occur anywhere else in Natal? How much of a problem is it? Which habitats is it invading into?

GR BANK has the features typical of a Grevillea: leaves divided with markedly different upper and lower surfaces. The flowerheads form a cluster or spike, with florets borne in pairs per floral bract, and the ovary walls developing into a thin-walled, leathery follicle. It can further be identified by its deeply incised leaves with 511 lobes. The flowers are red or pink, and hairy on the outside.
