Grevillea bipinnatifida, also known as Fuchsia Grevillea, is a shrub which is endemic to Western Australia.


This species forms a spreading shrub which grows up to 1 m (3 ft) in height. It has red or orange flowers which appear from early autumn to mid summer (March to January in Australia).


The species occurs in and around Perth on granite outcrops, hills and occasionally on poorly draining flat areas.


The species was first formally described in 1830 by botanist Robert Brown.

Two subspecies are recognised:

  • Grevillea bipinnatifida R.Br. subsp. bipinnatifida
  • Grevillea bipinnatifida subsp. pagna Cranfield


A number of hybid cultivars have been produced which have Grevillea bipinnatifida as a parent species. These include a number of hybrids with Grevillea banksii including:

Other hybrids include:

  • G. 'Molly' (a cross with G. aurea)
  • G. 'Sunrise' (a cross with G. 'Clearview Robin')
