Grevillea rosmarinifolia

This lovely Australian shrub in Continents Apart, the Glasshouse Display that compares the floras of South Africa and Australia, two of the world's richest floras, has been in flower for months.

The grey-green foliage consists of thin, waxy needles not unlike rosemary, to which the epithet refers. But the flowers are elegant curls of shrimp pink, the shape of a periwinkle sea shell, from which protrude a proboscis-like style.
It's been flowering through the winter and has put on an extra flush in the last week as the temperature has warmed up somewhat.
